Lighthouses

Bénodet, with its exceptional location between the river and the ocean, boasts two lighthouses.

Pyramide Lighthouse and Coq Lighthouse

The Pyramide Lighthouse

Standing 48 m tall, the name of the Pyramide Lighthouse comes from a pyramid of stones that were used to signal the mouth of the Odet River to ships, across from a rock in the shape of a cockerel (the current spot of the Coq Lighthouse).
