A relaxed kind of place, modern Quimper is still active enough to have the bars – and the atmosphere – to make it worth going out café-crawling. "The charming little place" known to Flaubert takes at most half an hour to cross on foot. The town's name comes from "kemper", denoting the junction of the two rivers, the Steir and the Odet, around which are the cobbled streets (now mainly for pedestrians) of the medieval quarter, dominated by the cathedral nearby. As the Odet curves from east to southwest it's crossed by numerous low, flat bridges, bedecked with geraniums and chrysanthemums in the autumn. You can stroll along the boulevards on both banks of the river, where several ultramodern edifices blend in a surprisingly harmonious way with their ancient – and attractive – surroundings. Overlooking all are the wooded slopes of Mont Frugy. There's no great pressure in Quimper to rush around monuments or museums, and the most enjoyable option may be to take a boat and drift down "the prettiest river in France" to the open sea at Benodet.

A beautiful cathedral city with a medieval centre. A good place to visit with many tourist attractions as well as supermarkets, hypermarkets and many good restaurants. Well worth a visit
