“Well Worth The Trip”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

It was great to actually get inside such a magnificent structure. The 307 steps were a bit of a struggle after a week of overindulgence and my drumsticks were definitely burning by step 460 on the way down. Lots of history and an impressive feat of engineering. As far as I can gather it's the fifth tallest lighthouse in France and equal fourteenth tallest in the world! We also went to the non touristy bar 'round the corner which offered welcome refreshments.
