Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Côtes-d'Armor

Erquy - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Côtes-d'Armor

Cap d'Erquy and pink sandstone cliffs loom on the horizon as soon as you arrive from the coast.

Countless walks among the heather and gorse make you appreciate even more tasting seafood shells or other Saint-Jacques Erquy which is the capital!

For the record, would also greatly inspired Erquy Uderzo for drawings of the village of Asterix! We can also discover many similarities between the village of comics and the city of Erquy as the famous "Three Stones".
