This lighthouse shown above is the Grand Phare de l’île de Sein and was built in the late 1830’s in order to meet safety requirements. The currents and flows are famous for being very strong in this area, which makes it very dangerous for the boats. The island of Sein is located a few kilometers from the west coast of France, near the Pointe du Raz. The inhabitants had to adopt a special lifestyle due to the tough weather conditions.
