Île Vierge (5/9)

List item

Île Vierge lies off the north coast of Brittany and marks out the very last reaches of the south west of the English channel and boasts the world’s largest ‘traditional’ lighthouse. Constructed from stone rather than the likes of concrete, there is a robust and archaic charm that arises from Île Vierge’s lighthouse as it towers 82.5 metres in the sky. Actually the sight of two lighthouses despite its small size, the region was only purchased by the French in 1844.
