Introducing Quimper

Small enough to feel like a village, with its slanted half-timbered houses and narrow cobbled streets, and large enough to buzz as the troubadour of Breton culture and arts, Quimper (kam-pair) is Finistère's thriving capital. With some excellent museums, one of Brittany's loveliest old quarters and a delightful setting along the Odet River, Quimper deserves serious exploration.
