Morlaix is a town in FinistÃ¨re, in Brittany, 55 km northeast of Brest. The city has developed on the heights overlooking the estuary of the homonymous river of Morlaix, formed by the confluence of the courts of Jarlot and Queffleuth. The estuary separates the historical regions of LeÃ³n and TrÃ©gor. Morlaix took its rise from the eleventh century after the construction of a first seigneurial castle. The city was attached to the duchy of Brittany in the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, in 1522, British troops invaded the city before being repulsed. A new castle was then erected. The manufacture and trade of linen cloths then contributed to the prosperity of Morlaix, and then a tobacco factory was built there in the 17th century. Built on the slopes overlooking the estuary, the city is endowed in 1864 with a viaduct high of some 60 m which adds to its picturesque during the realization of the railway Paris-Brest. With nearly 17,000 inhabitants, despite the damage caused by the bombardments during the Second World War, Morlaix offers an authentic historical heart along the narrow alleys. Its rich built heritage, its cultural vitality and its typical coastal environment make this city of art and history an unmissable stopover.
