Camping - Quimper – 26 Km – Finistère
The architectural heritage in this medieval city is quite stunning with its cathedral (Saint-Corentin), its timber-framed houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, its ramparts, museums and shops…
Shops and restaurants
There are lots of artisan shops in Rue Kéréon and nearby streets. If you are looking for a good crêperie, you will find what you are looking for at Place au Beurre. We also recommend you try some Philomène macaroons, the best in France.
The Halles Saint-François (covered market) is open everyday throughout the year (except Sunday afternoon).
Wednesday and Saturday: 8.30am-1.30pm along the Steïr and around the covered market.
