Photographer's Note

The Town of Saint-Brieuc is crossed by a valley embedded at the bottom of which Gouédic circulates which crosses the city with throwing itself in the sea with the Port of Légué.
Very pleasant walks are proposed to you.

You will see on the left the college Ernest Renan.
Opposite, the viaduct of Toupin built in 1904 by Louis Auguste Harel de la Noë for the Railroads of Coast-of-North. It was used by the line Saint-Brieuc - Moncontour until its closing. It from now on is used in highway-bridge.
Behind the viaduct, another more recent bridge which makes it possible to go on the left to Brest (in 1:30) and on the right to Rennes (in 1 hour).
At the bottom they are the beaches of Langueux, where great extents of sand to low tide allows you the sand yacht, the ballades with horse etc… That you will see better on the complementary photograph 1 where on the left you see the Tower of Cesson which was built in 1395 to protect the mouth from Gouët and the town of Saint-Brieuc of the attacks of the pirates. It is installed with nearly 70 m height on a rocky outcrop dominating bay. In 1598, Henri IV orders his destruction to prevent that it does not become the haunt of robbers. It is during this dismantling that half of the building collapsed. The tower is located today on a private field.
