I A Hotel La Perouse was given its name as a tribute to the great French navigator, Jean-Francois Galaup, Count of La Perouse (1741-1788). Louis XVI ordered La Perouse to lead a scientific mission that set sail from Brest on August 1, 1785, on two ships: the Astrolabe and the Boussole, which were filled with treasures. There were 213 men on board, including some of the era's great researchers. Their goal was to sail around the world and discover new lands and unknown civilizations.
