Tanguy Tower


Why take advantage?

The Tanguy Tower plunges you into the heart of pre-war Brest. Built in the 14th century as a sentinel over the Penfeld, it now houses Jim Sévellec's dioramas. Flagship works by the Brest-based artist, these models bring to life the great moments in the history of the city of the Ponant, as well as the little moments in the daily lives of its inhabitants.
