Quimper was en Episcopal and ducal town and established itself as the historic capital of Cornouaille.
Its medieval aspect, dominated by its gothic cathedral, does not mean it is any less a town of the 19th and 20th centuries. Stroll around its medieval streets with its half-timbered houses telling their own stories.
The earthenware, the tradition of textiles and the dynamism of the boutiques in Quimper will delight the most demanding in terms of shopping. Street entertainment is frequent and cultural events are scheduled throughout the year. Grand Prix National du Fleurissement (national “in bloom” competition winner)
