Quimper

Quimper is an adorable medieval town in the heart of Bretagne. It has a strong Breton culture and most of the signs are labeled in French and Breton. Many of the original medieval homes remain and are colorfully painted. A part of the original ramparts remains as well. This is unusual as much of Brittany was destroyed by air bombings during World War II. A cathedral is located at the center of the town with spires that were so intricately decorated they remind me of lace. Two rivers run through the town and make for some lovely bridges and the relaxing trickle of water can be heard in the background.
