When you take a train from Montparnasse station, in Paris, you may notice a strange building on your right. It is a reproduction of a Breton lighthouse of Le Croisic. It is said that it aims to welcome Bretons when they arrive at the French capital. The district of Paris is actually well known its restaurants serving buckwheat pancakes. The lighthouse is on top of the famous fishmonger's "La Criee du Phare" (69 rue Castagnary, 15th district, Paris, France).
