“Bargain, well worth a climb for the fantastic view”
Review of Phare d'Eckmuhl

Phare d'Eckmuhl
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Penmarch
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 September 2012

Whilst the village itself is nothing to write home about the climb up the Phare d'Eckmuhl is great, and curiously underplayed in the Rough Guide. At 3 Euros it's cheap as chips for a climb to the top and a view across the peninsula. Worth every penny.

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.
