A lighthouse and a museum
At the top of Mont Rizan, in Verzenay, a lighthouse worthy of Brittany stands amid a sea of vines. It is 82 ft high (25 m) and consists of 101 steps. Joseph Goulet had it built in 1909 to promote his champagne wines. The lighthouse formerly hosted celebrations in its tavern and its restaurant. The First World War put an end to this success, and the lighthouse went out for several decades until its renovation between 1994 and 1999. An eco-museum adjoins it and allows understanding the historical, geographical, and human characteristics of the region. The lighthouse of Verzenay celebrated its 110th birthday in 2019.
