Where to stay in Quimper

About Quimper

Serving as the ancient capital of Cornouaille, Quimper is a historically rich city in modern-day Brittany. It was founded at the confluence of Le Steir and L'Odet rivers and centres around an atmospheric old town clustered with half-timbered houses. Quimper is home to a magnificent cathedral and several fine museums that explore its cultural and artistic history.

Things to do

In the heart of Quimper’s old town is the Quimper Cathedral, a Gothic-style religious landmark dominated by two soaring spires. Dating from the 13th century, it is unique in that it was constructed to bend slightly in the middle in order to avoid a swampy area of ground. Step inside to admire the statue of Saint Corentin and the 15th-century stained glass windows, as well as an angel painting by Yann Dargent.

If you’re interested in the history of the region, don’t miss a visit to the Breton County Museum, which occupies the former palace of the Bishops of Cornouaille. In addition to traditional costumes, antique furniture and locally-made ceramics, its exhibits include several treasures dating back to the Bronze and Iron Ages.

Art enthusiasts shouldn’t miss a visit to the Musée des Beaux-Arts, which houses an impressive collection of French paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. Quimper is also synonymous with ceramics and faïence pottery has been produced in the Locmaria quarter for more than 300 years. This legacy is celebrated at the Musée de la Faïence, where more than 2,500 pottery pieces are exhibited.

Getting around

Quimper–Cornouaille Airport is a 15-minute drive from the centre of Quimper and has regular flights to Paris and London. High-speed trains connect from destinations across France to the Quimper railway station and buses travel throughout the town.
