December 16, 2011, Storm Joachim. Winds exceed 100 km / h in Brittany. It's time to go by helicopter to see the waves burst on the headlights. There is no lighthouse further west than Armen. No further side.
The lighthouse of Ar-Men (Ar Men meaning "rock" or "stone" in Breton) was born following the tragic sinking of Frégate Sané on the rocky plateau west of the island of Sein. Its construction was delicate between 1867 and 1881, because this isolated rock almost never discovers. The weather conditions do not facilitate the landing of the workers, even in good weather, given the violent currents.
The journalist and writer Jean-Pierre Abraham will become a lighthouse keeper to write an eponymous book that has become a cult of maritime literature. During the storm Joachim in December 2011, the waves passed the lens located 33 meters high.
It was automated in 1990.
