TRAVEL THE WORLD - QUIMPER, BRITTANY, FRANCE
Quimper is a lovely city located at the confluence of three rivers. The city centre is enhanced by the presence of one of these and by attractive modern buildings and landscaping. But the old city, Vieux Quimper, is what we enjoyed most when we visited in 2008. As you can see in the photo, the original street pattern with homes and shops hugging the cathedral still exists today. It was easy to imagine how people lived there in medieval times.
