Quimper : Michelin's recommendations
The spires of St Corentin cathedral rise at the heart of Quimper, historic capital of Cornouaille. The narrow streets are bordered by half-timbered houses bearing the names of medieval guilds. Equally rewarding strolls may be enjoyed further out of town, notably on the banks of the River Odet, halfway between the Breton hinterland and the sea.
