A monument by the banks of the Jaudy commemorating the Franco-American naval aviation center.
Coming from Paimpol on the D786, cross the Jaudy on the bridge and then take a right to Plouguiel on the D70. Cross the Guindy and park your car at the head of the D8, right after the bridge crossing. At the Priel/Plouguiel town limits, take the dirt road leading to "Gites de France" cottages. Take this path for about a kilometer. The monument is on the right hand side slightly overlooking the Jaudy.
