Always beautiful Quimper!!!

Indeed, once again Quimper!!! this is a very nice city we love and with so much to see sometimes we take time to come back, but come back we did this week and can’t wait to be back ! This is an update of an older post, and really not much to tell as I have plenty written in my blog on various spots of the city. However, always worth it to come back!

We were riding the road warrior routine in the Finistére dept 29 of my lovely Bretagne and with time decided to stop by  Quimper before heading home in my beautiful  Morbihan  breton dept 56 !  One thing we love to do once in Quimper is to walk, indeed walk as much as you can and see more of the beautiful city. One walk that is a must repeat is the one by the Odet river and over and across its passarelle bridges lovely sublime, this is  Quimper and for that my lovely Bretagne!

The passarelles from the theater Max Jacob coming along the Odet river to the Préfecture of Finistére and along the blvd Dupleix and Blvd Amiral du Kerguelen are Passarelle Louis Pasteur, Passarelle Canet-Mallejacq (right by old gardens) ; Passarelle Bolloré, (here is the post office and the pont de la poste); Passarelle Guével, Passarelle Max Jacob (by the Bishop’s garden) ; Passarelle de la Phalange d’Arvor, (start again of old gardens) Passarelle Tanguy, Passarelle Traonouez; Passarelle Liot, here you see the Musée Départemental Breton or Breton dept museum, and the pont St Catherine. A wonderful promenade indeed we love to do each time in town!


While in this walk, even if no time to go in again (see posts) we love the Musée Départemental Breton or the Departemental Breton Museum on the local history of customs and the city lovely historical and an nice architecturally stunning bishop’s palace.  And a peek of the Cathedral St Corentin!!! (see post). There is the always wonderful passarelles, sublime, or as I said in heavens. The always wonderful Place Saint Corentin full of great ambiance, lively and great places to sip , shop , and see the world go by. Right there is the inmense Cathedral St Corentin. On the right a peek at the fine arts museum musée des beaux-arts.



The always a must Rue Kéreon right off the Place St Corentin and into old Quimper full of restos, shops, and ice cream parlors , our favorite is Georges Larnicol, also with stores in Paris but Breton! Of course, our favorite street in town for sights of architecture, history ,and just fun eating /shopping places.



In all, it is always a pleasant visit to Quimper , one of the must cities to visit in the Finistére breton and Brittany in my opinion; and these days full of tourists again , especially from UK and Germany. Don’t missed out on it come on over folks, you will love it as we do!!!
