This half a mile long promenade, named after it’s architect and built in 1769 at the military’s behest, is today a popular spot for a twilight stroll in Brest. It is lined with elm-trees, looks over the commercial port of Brest, and ends at the entrance to Brest Castle – as pretty a package as any walk could be.
It has other highlights too, such as:
- The Rose Tower: an WWI American monument.
- The Jean Cras Monument: a plaque dedicated to an Admiral who invented the Cras Rule (a mapping technique), but was also a musician of some note.
- The Porstrein Stairs.
- The Neo-classical Brest Courthouse.
When the weather is nice, it’s a very peaceful place.
Trivia: The 2008 Tour de France started here.
