Pronounced “kam-pair”, Quimper is the centre of arts and culture in Brittany, a region of northern France. Quimper means “the meeting of two rivers”: the River Odet and the River Steir. With its rustic cobblestone streets and charming footbridges, travellers often find walking is the best way to explore this ancient city.
The main historic sight in Quimper is Cathedral Saint-Corentin, an imposing Gothic structure with two distinctive spires. Nearby, the Museum of Brittany displays many important artefacts from Breton history. And the Museum of Fine Arts hosts a fascinating array of paintings and artworks.
Quimper is best known for its pottery and earthenware industry. Travellers can visit the Earthenware Museum for insight into this historic local tradition. Quimper earthenware can also be bought in shops across the city.
