Spend a day in Morlaix

It’s just about possible to visit Morlaix in a day. You’ll be clambering up the stairs in the town, threading through the alleyways, under or over the viaduct and maybe even gliding on two wheels...

A circuit through the alleyways

Head for the Tourist Office, where Pascale, Mireille or Marie will happily give you a map of the town, which shows you the key sites to visit while you’re here.
Start with Saint-Melaine church (1489), and follow the narrow street called la venelle aux prêtres that leads to the first level of the viaduct: sure to give you a thrilling sensation as well as a fabulous view over the town. Cross over the Viadcut and then head back down to the town along la venelle de La Roche.
Don’t miss the Maisons à Pondalez!
Two unique buildings known as maisons à pondalez are open to the public: the most famous is the Maison dite de la duchesse Anne situated on the rue du Mur and the Maison à Pondalez, 9 Grand-Rue, Heritage Centre.
Continue through the area of Saint-Mathieu with its beautiful church and chapel.
Next, stroll on to Place des Jacobins and the museum, then the rue Ange de Guernisac that will bring you full circle back to where you started.
Naturally, it would be a shame not to complete your visit with a quick walk along the marina to admire the boats bobbing up and down.

And another suggestion: Morlaix by bike

Head for the Maison Penanault where you’ll find the Tourist Office, and Yannick will explain the options of hiring the right bike to suit you: a town bike or one with an electric boost. He’ll also give you a trail that is especially designed for cyclists.
