Foothill fort at the Pointe de Lostmarc'h

The Iron Age foothill fort at the Pointe de Lostmarc'h ( French L'éperon barré de Lostmarc'h ) on the Crozon Peninsula is near Crozon in Cornouaille in the Finistère department in Brittany in France .

Just below the large headland of Lostmarc'h there is a smaller one, separated from the mainland by two rows of massive ramparts and ditches. The ruins of a medieval chapel are on the site.

These demarcations, such as Pointe de Lostmarc'h, which are particularly widespread in the British Isles and are called Promontory Forts there , roughly corresponding to the section wall, are mostly found in the Iron Age and otherwise less common on the continent .

The "L'éperon barré de Castel Meur" in Cléden at Cap Sizun is another nearby foothill fort.

Nearby is the stone row of Lostmarc'h .
