Brittany is a cultural region in the northwest of France. Previously a kingdom, then a duchy, Brittany was united with France in 1532. A long history of human occupation extends to the Neolithic as evidenced by the presence of numerous megalithic constructions. The Romans called it Armorica; then for centuries after the 10th century it was allied sometimes with England, and sometimes with France. The western-most region, Leon, is part of Brittany that was once part of the six Celtic nations, where Breton is still spoken. Town names that begin with “Plou-“ meaning parish in Breton, include Ploudalmezeau, Plourin, Plouarzel, Plouzane, Plougonvelin and Plougin. The northwestern-most point of metropolitan France is the Island of Ushant (Ile de Ouessant in French). The image was acquired February 16, 2008, covers an area of 15 by 42 km, and is located near 48.4 degrees north latitude, 4.7 degrees west longitude.
