Bright red and sugar sweet: The strawberry route of Plougastel
There is no doubt among Bretons that the best strawberries in Europe grow in Plougastel. The clay and slate rich soil south of Brest, the mild rainy climate is ideal for growing them. The inhabitants of the region dedicate a museum to their premium product - and a strawberry route.
While the museum tells the story of the strawberry of Brittany, originally from Chile, visitors can taste the fruits, visit production facilities or try specialities such as strawberry liqueur on the tourist route - from March to November. Monasteries, churches and abbeys can also be admired.
