It is a granite tower 92 meters above the sea adjoining the technical buildings and housing of the guards. The tower was built from 1826 to 1835, according to the project of the physicist Augustin Fresnel, chief engineer and secretary of the Commission des Phares in Paris. Nowadays, its range is around 50 kilometers, making it one of the most powerful in Europe. It is a state property which was listed in the supplementary inventory of historic monuments in 1995 (as well as the mist siren which depends on it). Go up there! After 247 steps, discover the most breathtaking view of Belle-île. On the ground floor, a permanent exhibition deals with various themes: the administration and history of lighthouses, the job of guardians, markings and natural spaces.
