Bec ar Paunn

Légende du Phare du Paon :

Jusqu’en 1944, les derniers gardiens étaient des femmes, la mère puis la fille, qui habitaient la demeure située au pied du phare. Selon la légende, Mériadek, comte de Goëllo, avait deux fils : Gwil et Isselbert. Pour recueillir les biens de leur père, ils décident de le tuer. Celui-ci tente de s’enfuir dès qu’il a vent du complot. Les deux fils rattrapent leur père au Paon et l’assassinent. Mais en précipitant le cadavre à la mer, ils sont transformés en rochers, le sang de leur père donnant sa couleur au granit. Ainsi naît le gouffre du Paon.

Les jeunes Bréhatines venaient autrefois là et lançaient une pierre dans le gouffre. Si la pierre tombait directement, elles se mariaient dans l’année, sinon elles devaient attendre autant d’années que de rebonds.

France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor.
