This place, which is now a must-see, is a mixture of cultural and commercial centre: media library, catering services, theatre and climbing hall, cinema, businesses, shops and galleries all live together in Les Ateliers des Capucins.
An atypical place that has managed to preserve its industrial heritage and win over the hearts of Brest residents and visitors alike.
