Sentier des Douaniers - Le Bono by 


Created in 1791 to fight against smuggling, footpath allows you to tour of Brittany.
It has two names: the coastal path or footpath.

For several centuries, Custom Agents made the rounds of Brittany’s coast, relentlessly trying to track smugglers from England. There were 1300 kilometers of coastline to monitor day and night to prevent any fraudulent landing.
When smuggling stopped, the trail was abandoned, it has since been restored to its original state. The Conservatoire du Littoral has been special protection and the footpath turned into a hiking trail (GR 34).
It begins at the Port of Saint-Nazaire, Loire-Atlantique and ended up at the gates of Mont-Saint-Michel, in northern Brittany.

Créé en 1791 pour lutter contre la contrebande, le sentier des douaniers permet de faire le tour de la Bretagne.
Il porte deux noms : sentier du littoral ou sentier des douaniers et longe des à-pics maritimes.

Pendant plusieurs siècles, les douaniers arpentèrent sans relâche les côtes bretonnes pour traquer les contrebandiers en provenance d’Angleterre. Il y avait 1300 kilomètres de côtes à surveiller jour et nuit pour interdire tout débarquement frauduleux.
Quand la contrebande cessa, on abandonna le sentier jusqu’aux dernières décennies où il fut remis en état.
Le Conservatoire du Littoral en a fait l’objet d’une protection particulière, et le sentier des douaniers s’est transformé en chemin de grande randonnée (GR 34).
Il débute au port de Saint-Nazaire, en Loire Atlantique et termine sa course aux portes du Mont-Saint-Michel, dans la Manche.
