Situated in Bangor, the Goulphar lighthouse, also known as le Grand Phare, is one of the finest lighthouses on the coast of France. It was built in 1832-35. Its granite base rises to 47 m and the total height is some 87 m above the sea. The light is emitted every 3 seconds and every 7 seconds and can be seen up to 28 miles out to sea. It has been listed since 1995 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
Inhabitants of Bangor are called Bangorins.
