Morlaix is a market town and often linked to the sea. It is located on the west coast of Brittany, near Le Conquet, a tourist destination. Inhabitants of Morlaix are called Morlaysiens. History [ edit ] The name "Morlaix" comes from two Breton words: mor meaning "sea", and laiz meaning "land". The old quarter of the town has winding streets typical of medieval towns such as Carcassonne or Cádiz in Spain. At one point in history there was an active harbour which traded with Ireland; however it was too small for modern ships. There are also remnants (a tower) left over from when England owned this area during The Hundred Years War. A tidal river that almost completely dries out at low tide reaches the town from nearby Gouarec (Gwenedeg).
