The viaduct dominates the steep sided valley in which the centre of Morlaix nestles, and as others have said its very difficult to miss. If you head straight for it there parking underneath - its reasonably priced, and you pay-on-foot. Also there are free, spotless,...More

There is a non obvious pedestrian walkway along the lower level of the viaduct that requires some effort to climb up to, but is well worth the effort. Even more enjoyable as it is free.

What a masterpiece of a structure and tastefully lit at night. Great also when you are a little lost when driving as its a great landmark. Morlaix is a beautiful town and this is its jewell.

This is not just any old railway viaduct. It has dominated this town since 1865, and much of the subsequent development of the town centre has been influenced by it. It plays a major part in the history of the town, not least in a...More

Morlaix is a delightful Breton town, but what makes it unique is the imposing Viaduct that cuts right through the centre of the town. This magnificent feat of engineering, constructed in the early 1860’s, is today regarded as a historic monument which supports the fast...More

The viaduct spans the whole city of Morlaix. The top of the viaduct is only for the train. But the second floor under the train route is opened for the public. Walker can use it. If you are in Morlaix go up and you will...More

Whilst this is not a beautiful piece of architecture, it is monumental and is the dominant feature of Morlaix, as it strides through the centre of the town.
