Fort La Latte

The Castle of Roche Goyon, also called Fort La Latte, is a castle located on the tip of the Latte, near Cap Frehel in the department of Cotes-d'Armor in the municipality of Plevenon in the bay of Saint-Malo. Remarkable for its location on a rocky cape, facing the sea, it served as a backdrop for several films. The castle of Roche-Goyon was built in the fourteenth century by the lord of Matignon, Stephen III Gouon. The construction of the castle began in the 1340s, its keep dates from 1365-1370. In 1379, after the exile of the Duke of Brittany John IV, the castle was besieged by Bertrand Du Guesclin. It was not until the eighteenth century, under Louis XIV, that the castle regains its strategic interest. It will serve until the end of the First Empire where the evolution of military techniques led to its inadaptability. From 1892, it was sold to various private owners before being bought by an enthusiast Frederic Jouon Des Longrais in 1931 who undertook heavy restoration work.

Already while approaching the Fort via Hiking path you get fabulous views on the castle. The entrance fee is 6,50 for adults - not cheap, yet everything is in good order and you stroll around and get a good impression of medivial life (although of course a bit limited because of COVID). A highlight is the view from the tower.

Cap Frehel

Reviewed By Bree_Guitta - Dublin, Ireland

Very nice spot, not too crowded (due to Covid?) Beautiful view of the cliffs. Nice to have an easy walk (you can do more if you like!). To get up the lighthouse you have to pay 3€ but its‘ worth it. Parking fee is 3€ for 3 hours (longer stay not possible) and keep 3€ in coins ready,it‘s easier and faster to pay this way.

3. Cap Frehel Lighthouse
