La pointe du Millier is located by the Iroise sea, to the north of Cap Sizun. It is a place for strolling and hiking, which lets you contemplate the west Brittany shores.
At the end of this cape, you can see the Millier lighthouse, which backs onto a small keeper's house. Built in 1881, its lantern is located 34 metres above sea level.
The Cap de la Chèvre is located on the southern point of the Crozon peninsula. Cliffs, covered in moors and long sandy beaches, renowned with surfers and closed to swimmers, overlook the west coast.
Other wonders to see from the Cap de la Chèvre: the bay of Douarnenez, the Bay of the Dead, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon (from afar) and even the cave of Charivari only accessible by boat during the spring tide.
Le Menez Hom is a hill which is 330 metres high and is located on the peninsula of Crozon. It is a former volcano, now extinct. At its summit, you can see the entire Bay of Douarnenez.
Considered as one of the sacred mountains of Armorica, Le Menez Hom is a protected site, the rock from which dates back roughly 400 million years.
In addition to the exceptional view that it offers, Le Menez Hom is also an ideal space for walks or running. Don't hesitate to stop off at the Sainte-Marie chapel, a listed historical monument.
Standing opposite the Cathédrale Saint-Corentin, in the heart of the cornouaillais capital, the musée des Beaux-Arts de Quimper (Fine Arts Museum) was created in 1864 as a result of a legacy of the remarkable collection of paintings and drawings by the count Jean-Marie de Silguy being given to his native city. Designed by the architect Joseph Bigot, the musée de Silguy was inaugurated in 1872. Renovated for a first time in 1976, the museum was the subject from 1991 to 1993 of major extension works and restructuring led by the architect Jean-Paul Philippon. The works allowed new structures to be developed for reception and to restore, in line with its initial layout, the whole of the décor made by Lemordant in 1905-1909 for the dining rooms of the Hhôtel de l'Epée in Quimper.
In the Locmaria district on the banks of the Odet, the Quimper Musée de la Faïence (Ceramics and Earthenware Museum) associates art with passion. A periodically updated exhibition of 500 pieces of pottery will immerse you in the 300 year old tradition of faïencière (ceramics) in Quimper, which spearheaded a rivival of Breton culture in one of the largest centres for French faïenciers still in operation.
You'll be seduced by the patterns, forms, colours and techniques of Quimper's celebrated faïence.
