Quimperlé, the secret

Logo Bretagne

Water, scenery and a rich built heritage. These are the main assets of Quimperlé, this small historic town divided between its upper town around the church of Notre-Dame and its lower town, where you can see the mansions of the merchant-shippers along the quays. And when you get lost in the narrow streets or stroll along the water's edge, you'll discover a dynamic town,

modern and inspiring!

#1 Quimperlé, where the two meet

A stroll through Quimperlé takes you back in time to the narrow medieval streets, the abbey church of Sainte-Croix and the fine residences of rue Brémond d'Ars, which reflect the great commercial activity of the 19th century. Taking the time to look around is the best way to make sure you don't miss out on the details of the facades, the rue Dom Morice which hides the magnificent Maison des Archers, the Halles built in 1887 and the medieval bridge known as the Pont Fleuri.

On the hill of Saint-Michel, known as the upper town, the church of Notre-Dame de l'Assomption watches over the town and its rivers, like a lighthouse overlooking the sea. A few steps away, in the little street that bears its name, the Frémeur hospital, a monument unique in Brittany, is revealed.

#2 Strolling around Quimperlé

Situated at the confluence of two rivers, Quimperlé is a naturally natural town! Small green spaces are never far away. The Parc des Gorrêts (1 ha), maintained in a rural atmosphere, is a restful spot on the banks of the Ellé. For a game of molkky with friends or a spot of reading in the shade of the trees, this park is a haven of peace. The Parc de Bel-Air is also a peaceful place to read in the shade, on a bench for example, with games for children. A stone's throw away, the belvedere offers a fine panoramic view of the confluence of the two rivers and the Laïta.

#3 An inspiring city for Breton culture
