Long Description:
"The local Breton name is Beg ar Raz. It is the western point of the commune of Plogoff, Finistère.

Pointe du Raz seen from Spot Satellite
It is named after the Raz de Sein, the dangerous stretch of water between it and the island of Sein (Enez Sun in Breton). It is a dramatic place of crashing waves and strong winds. It also marks the western end of the 3,200km E5 European long distance path to Verona in Italy." Source Wiki

"La pointe du Raz ([??]1, nom local en breton Beg ar Raz) est un cap rocheux situé à l'ouest de la commune de Plogoff (Finistère). Sa forme de proue s'avançant dans la mer d'Iroise, avec une différence de niveau de 72 mètres, en fait un des lieux les plus emblématiques des côtes granitiques de la Bretagne."
