The kereon lighthouse (le phare de Kéréon in french) stands on the Reef Men Tensel (“snappish stone” in Breton) between Ushant and Mullein on the passage of Fromveur in Iroise Sea.

The lighthouse was built between 1907 and 1916 and was named according to Charles-Marie Le Dall de Kéréon, a naval officer guillotined at the age of 19 during the Terror.

The lighthouse is full of luxury: mosaic in the stairwell, oak floors decorated with pink inlaid mahogany and ebony winds and oak paneling from Hungary.

But when keepers are going on weekends or vacation… It’s dangerous as hell:

In Brittany, a lighthouse isolated in the middle of the sea is called a ‘HELL’. The Kéréon lighthouse was the last “Hell” automatized in France (January 29, 2004).

Well working on the North Sea may sometimes be terrifying!
