Photographer's Note

The Site of the Cape dominates with peak the sea by 70 m, its red cliffs are bordered of reefs on which the swell breaks with violence.
The actually lighter, large square tower which dominates a vast esplanade, was built in 1950 following its destruction in 1944.

The first tower at side was built at the 17th century by Vauban. To light it was fed initially with coal. In order to improve its effectiveness, the whale oil made its appearance in 1729, replaced then by the oil of colza.
