About Paimpol, Saint-brieuc

Between the 15th and 19th centuries, the cod fishing industry was very profitable for Paimpol. Fishermen would sail from here to Iceland for up to as long as 8 months at a time. Like most of Brittany today though, Paimpol now focuses on tourism. And it certainly has a lot to offer. 17th century buildings, half-timbered dwellings and cobblestoned streets! The best places to check these out are the Place du Martray, Rue des Huit Patriotes and Rue des Islandais. The highlights are: 

  • 15th century ‘Maison Jezequel’ on La Rue des Huit Patriotes.
  • The Maison des Armateurs: A stone townhouse.
  • The Tower
  • The Paimpol History museum
  • The Tuesday morning weekly market at the the Place des Halles.
  • Beauport Abbey: A Grand Site of France.

The Steam Train that runs between Paimpol and Pontrieux between May and September is a lovely way to see the surrounding countryside. Ferries from the town run to Ile Brehat.
