Photographer's Note

Sentinel careful and protective of marine, Lighthouse Bénodet (in Breton, Bénodet = mouth of the Odet) door off its brilliance. At his feet, tiny schedules allow mariners to reach their boats moored in the Odet.

Lighthouse Bénodet or fire of the Pyramid is located on the left bank of the Odet Bénodet on the town.

The light tower height of 39 feet, painted white, is the upstream element of two arrays:

one with the lighthouse of Sainte Marine / Combrit right bank
the other with the fire of the coq (rooster) on the left bank.
A caretaker is on the other side of the road.

A strange building rises amid all these houses of Brittany. That got to do, this Moorish-style building well said? Here, it is called the Minaret. This is neither more nor less than the work of Maurice Heitz-Royer, doctor living in Morocco who attended in the 1920s, the Pasha of Marrakesh, El Hadj Tami Glaoui. This doctor was inspired by Moroccan architecture and was a reward for his services, support artists and mosaic of Pasha to realize his dream of a thousand and one nights in Brittany! Today, this superb residence is a restaurant, the Alhambra, an exotic setting that is worth trying.
