Brest Britanny France Feb 20, 2017
Brest was badly damaged in WW2,so most of the city is restored from then. The castle and the towers add a touch of history , along with th navel dockyards. Brest is in Brittany in north west France, and is the 2nd military port. Paris is 594 km away.---- Rue Siam Street is the main artery of the city ,with a tramway down the middle.--- Recouvence Bridge is a massive drawbridge over the river Penfold, 64m high [214 ft ]it separates the city district from Recouvence district. Brest lies on one of the worlds finest harbours with nearly 60 square miles of deep water.--- Sculpture Tree is 12m high fashioned metal and organic materials, is the work of architect Enric Ruiz Geli. The tree is near the bridge.--- American Monument ,was erected by U.S.A.to commemorate the achievments of naval forces of U.S.A. and France during WW2.----Tower Tanquy is a medieval tour on a rocky mound beside the river Penfold.--- I stayed at Hotel Citoteo De La Gare Brest. I travelled to Brest by train. Trains run to Paris, Rennes, Quimper and Morlax etc.
