Ar-Men (“the rock” in Breton) is a lighthouse at the west end of Brittany, France. It was built between 1867 and 1881.
Ar-Men is one of the best known lighthouses because of its isolated situation and the considerable difficulties its construction has presented, and the danger in evacuating its personnel. Considered as one of the most challenging workplaces by the community of lighthouse keepers, it has been named “The Hell of Hells”.
