De­cem­ber in France

Living France - - News -

The his­toric town of Quim­per (pro­nounced cam-pair), the ad­min­is­tra­tive cap­i­tal of Fin­istère, is re­garded as the cul­tural heart of Brit­tany. While many flock to this part of France dur­ing the warm sum­mer months, a visit in win­ter is equally de­light­ful. The town is home to the im­pres­sive cathe­dral of St-Corentin (named af­ter Quim­per’s first bishop), and is said to be the best ex­am­ple of Gothic re­li­gious ar­chi­tec­ture in Brit­tany. Wan­der along Rue Kéréon ( pic­tured) and you will find many shops, from high street names to those sell­ing tra­di­tional Bre­ton pro­duce. touris­me­quim­per.com
