In HALIOTIKA- La Cité de la Pêche,

…the whole family explores the high seas: adults and children can dive into the fishermen’s world.

In this modern and interactive discovery centre, Haliotika introduces you to the real fishing universe: virtual fishing boat gangway, trawl reproduction and its fishing, visual and audible environment, riddles for children… everything is designed to take grown-ups and little ones imaginarily onto the Breton fishing boats.

Fees: adults (€6.00) – children (€4.00)

Haliotika also offers several workshops and visits: fish sale at auction, port visits, tasting workshops, cooking workshops, seaweed workshops, treasure hunts, embarkation… And don’t forget our wonderful sea view terrace from where you can leisurely watch the unloading of the catch.
