Finistère is a department of France in the extreme west of Brittany.
The name Finistère derives from the Latin Finis Terræ, meaning end of the earth.
PORTSALL This is a coastal town in the commune of Ploudalmézeau, located in north-western Finistère on the banks of the Iroise Sea. Its inhabitants are the Portsallais.
In 1951 was created in the territory of Ploudalmézeau the parish of Port-Sall (noted Portsall in 1394), dedicated to Our Lady of the Scapular.
This port draws its fame on one hand from its rocks but especially from the sinking of the Amoco Cadiz in 1978. This giant super tanker that ran aground on a stormy day caused pollution of the coast over more than 150 km.
The largest population center in Finistère is Brest. Other large towns in the department include Quimper (the capital), Concarneau, Morlaix, Carhaix, Quimperlé and Douarnenez.
Finistère includes the island of Ushant (Eusa in Breton, Ouessant in French).
Finistère is the westernmost department of Metropolitan France and can also claim to be the "most coastal" department in Metropolitan France.
Of its 279 communes, 118 are located on the coast. Its total coastline of approximately 1,250 km (776.71 mi) accounts for almost a quarter of the entire Brittany coast-line.
The abers, rugged fjord-like inlets on the north coast, are a notable feature of the landscape.
The westernmost point of continental France, known as the Pointe de Corsen, extends from the northwestern tip of Finistère. About 40 kilometres to the south (as the crow flies) is the slightly less westerly, but rugged and isolated, headland of Pointe du Raz.
Agriculture, food processing and various related industries occupy an important place in Finistère's economy.
The military presence in Finistère (Île Longue nuclear submarine base and the Naval Air base of Lanvéoc-Poulmic), as well as military-related industries, such as the Brest headquarters of DCNS, employ a significant number of the département's population.
