Finistère

Finistère (Breton: Penn-ar-Bed) is a département of France, located in Brittany (Breizh in Breton and Bretagne in French).

History

The name Finistère derives from the Latin Finis Terræ, meaning end of the earth, and may be compared with Land's End on the opposite side of the English Channel. Interestingly, the Breton Penn ar Bed translates as Head of the World. Finistère is not to be confused with Cape Finisterre in Spain.

Geography

Finistère is the westernmost region of France.

The largest population center in Finistère is Brest. Other large towns in the département include Quimper (the prefecture or capital), Morlaix, Carhaix and Douarnenez. Finistère includes the island of Ushant (Eusa in Breton, Ouessant in French).

The abers, rugged fjord-like inlets on the north coast, are a notable feature of the landscape.

The westernmost point of continental France, known as the Pointe de Corsen, extends from the north-western tip of Finistère. A few miles to the south is the slightly less westerly, but rugged, & isolated, headland of Pointe du Raz.
