This is undoubtedly, with the port of Gwin-Zegal Plouha (22), the last representative in France of a very particular mode of anchorage whose history dates back to the Middle Ages. A simple mooring on wooden piles. These posts from 6 to 8 m high are precisely what makes the originality of this small port nestled at the foot of some old seaweed houses. They simply serve to moor the boats. A must see.

C'est sans doute, avec le port de Gwin-Zegal à Plouha (22), le dernier représentant en France d'un mode de mouillage très particulier dont l'histoire remonte au Moyen-Age. Un simple mouillage sur pieux de bois. Ces poteaux de 6 à 8 m de hauteur sont justement ce qui fait l'originalité de ce petit port niché au pied de quelques anciennes maisons de goémoniers. Ils servent tout simplement à amarrer les bateaux. A voir absolument.
