Porh-Puns may be a shore battery but it is also a fort. The name means "Fort of the Well" in Breton. There is a well/spring in the village. It is buried deep in the dune - there are 27 steps to get down to the fresh water. Legend has it that the name actually means "Fort of Fleas", since the Spanish raiders were known to be a bunch of flea-bitten rascals.
