Dahouët

 

 

Situated on a coastal inlet, the port at Dahouët was founded by tradesmen from the town of Lamballe in the 12th century and became a busy trading centre in the Middle Ages.

Starting from the 15th century, cod fishing expeditions to Newfoundland and Iceland shaped the present day appearance of the Terre Neuvas dock by bringing wealth and prosperity to the ship-owners, who built their houses here.
