Quimper, a so charming town to discover in Brittany
Quimper is a city located in Brittany, in the western part of France. This lovely city is only 56 km away from Brest, at the west end of the Finistere. Quimper counts around 63.000 inhabitants.
Quimper is considered as a very pleasant place to stay and to live. This nice city is multiply labelled : "ville d’art et d’histoire" (city of art and history), and it is one of the most flowered city of France…
Historically, Quimper is a great trading city. It kept this function with numerous little shops in ancient streets where you will be pleased to stroll in. Quimper has also a wonderful cultural heritage : go to visit the Saint-Corentin’s cathedral or the Butter square.
The city of Quimper is also known for its typical earthenware : born in the historical area of Locmaria, this artwork is still practised in many workshops, like the one of Henriot Quimper you can visit.

The train was stationed when I reached the Quimper station. The screen showed which platform it was on. Once I reached the train they had a sign with the coach directions. This was what I was worried about. They had a station master to assist. The cabin and seats were comfortable and had good air conditioning. The journey was a comfortable one for sure from Quimper to Rennes.
