The church of Saint-Sauveur in Recouvrance, the oldest parish church in Brest[1]

Recouvrance is the section of the city of Brest, France on the right bank of the river Penfeld. It is a popular and historically Breton quarter, in contrast to the largely Francophone quarter of Brest-même or Brest-proper on the left bank.

The lift bridge over the Penfeld was named after this neighbourhood, as was a schooner built in 1992 in the city.
