European Rail Guide to Morlaix

There are two aspects to Morlaix’s character: the quaint old town centre that leads to the port, and the active side that’s popular with fans of the outdoors. Starting in the centre, narrow cobbled streets are populated by timber-framed houses, some believed to date back to the 15th century. The Maison de la Duchesse Anne is believed to be the oldest, and it’s been turned into a museum that illustrates what a typical local home of the period would look like.

The paths along the coast are popular with hikers and offer pretty views of the sandy beaches, which attract surfers, scuba divers and keen sailors. Don’t miss the chance to walk along the elevated railway viaduct, from where you’ll get a great view of the whole town.
