It’s not certain exactly who built this medieval tower or when; it may have been the British during the 14th century or the lord Tanguy du Chastel a little earlier during the Breton War of Succession. Standing on a rocky motte, it faces Brest Castle. The Museum of Old Brest open here in 1962; the highlights are:

  • Dioramas of Brest as it was before World War II.
  • The Last Stand of "Mary the Cinch" in 1512.
  • Dioramas of The Recouvrance market, Imperial bridge and the Rue de Siam in 1918.
  • Historical photographs, postcards and other documents.
