The semaphore

The semaphore, above the beach of Parlementia was formerly used as lookout of whales in the bay.

When the lookout perceived the whale, he gave the alert, sounded the bell.

The fishermen went down then their “traînières” of the hold and left in pursuit of the invaluable cetacean.

Today maritime affairs use it to indicate the presence of reefs to the sailors.

It is registered on the additional inventory of historic monuments.
