Le corbeau

The "Château des Corbeaux" (Castle of the Ravens), more commonly known as "Le Corbeau" (the Raven), is a granite massif dominating a rocky point located north of the Île-Grande.

Widely visible on both sides of the island, serving as a landmark for sailors, Le Corbeau faces the archipelago of the Triagoz which silhouette of the famous lighthouse is visible.

Spared by the quarrymen, who extracted between 1850 and 1950 a good part of the outcrops granitic surroundings, the rock looks like a watchtower, and the Romantics see through it a formidable sentry braving the sea ...

It is difficult to reach the site by an isthmus formed of several thousand blocks of granite, rounded by the action of the waves, and only during low tides: Do not go there if you are not able to cross this natural obstacle and without consulting the tide times...

However, the place is worth to be admired closely: reserved for fans of iodized air and tonic meeting with the marine elements!
