Discover Haliotika - La Cité de la Pêche

In the heart of the first French artisanal fishing harbour, Haliotika – La Cité de la Pêche takes its visitors into the fascinating world of sea fishing. From 4.30pm, come and watch the return of the Guilvinec coastal trawlers from the panoramic terrace and observe the variety of fish species caught. Then Haliotika will answer all of your questions : how do fishermen live ? Where does our fish come from and how is it caught ? What are the flagship species of our coasts ? How are they sold, at what price and when should we consume them ? After visiting Haliotika, fishing will no longer hold any secrets for you !

The Sea fishing Discovery Center

In our new 2020 exhibiton « Embarquement Immédiat » (Immediate Embarkation), you will virtually embark on board the « Bara Breizh », a deep-sea trawler from Le Guilvinec. Each space on the ship has been reconstructed : the kitchen, lazarette, interactive bridge, berths, showers, cloakroom, fish hold, engine room… This is a unique opportunity to experience a real immersion in the daily life of fishermen by sharing a tide with a local Bigouden crew, without getting seasick !

Our 2nd exhibition « De la Mer à l’assiette » (From Sea to plate) will give you the opportunity to discover the product of the fishermen’s quest : fish ! Follow its journey through the fish market, the fish shops, the fish monger’s… to our plates !
