Douarnenez was founded in the 12th century. The city has many legends. One says that on the bottom of the bay lies the mythical Ker-Is city sunk because of the daughter of King Gradlon Dahut. From the city flooded with sea water, only Dahut himself and King Gradlon, the founder of the city of Kemper, survived.
There is another local landmark - the legend of the knight Tristan. He fell in love with Princess Isolde. They were destined to be together only after death.
