“Mix feeling from the visit”

Tour de la Motte Tanguy
Ranked #9 of 60 things to do in Brest
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 August 2014

First, the collection of dioramas is lovely. However, no photo is allowed inside so it was a pity...
Also we were hoping we could view the castle from the upper floor of the tower but all the windows are closed so another shame.
Good thing is that the entry is free so even we only spent 10min inside, it was ok.

Thank Rabi F

The views from the Tower are lovely. It is free to visit. Each level has dioramas and photos of old Brest. The wooden staircase and ceiling are beautiful. There are only 3 levels to see and easily takes about 30 minutes to view. It is just down the stairs from the closest tram stop. Make note, all of the brochures and comments are in French.

two good things, in this place.First One is this is situated in a very nice environment and the building is old and good architecture, and the second one is this free of charge.There is nothing much to see here, only few pictures and photos of old ships and documents that I guess something related to ships.Other than that there is nothing especial here but you can take nice photos from out side of this place.
