lighthouse Eckmühl

Lighthouse Eckmühl in May 2004. The lighthouse is open for visitors (the only one during our trip), 307 steps to climb for a nice view. The picture in the middle shows the whole complex of lighthouse buildings at the tip west of Penmarc'h, from the left: the semaphore, the church (its tower worked earlier as lighthouse),the old lighthouse Penmarc'h (today Centre de Découverte Maritime), the new lighthouse.
