You can drive to Quimper. Situated on the River Odelt and 15 km from the sea, Quimper has lots to offer the tourist including the imposing Cathédrale Saint Corentin which began its construction in 1239. Quimper has four museums and is famous for its production of pottery. The indoor market, Les Halles Saint Francois is open daily and there is an open air market, Le Grand Marché on Wednesday & Saturday mornings. The flower market takes place on Saturday mornings. Medieval houses can be seen at La Place Terre du Duc, Rue du Chapeau Rouge and Rue Saint Matheiu. The church of St Matheiu has some remarkable stained glass windows. Numerous festivals take place throughout the year.
Also you can drive to the small town of Locronan . During the 16th and 17th centuries, it was a centre for sail-cloth making for the local ship-building industry. Further back in history, Locronan was a sacred place for the celts - known as a 'nemeton' - then later an important religious centre during the middle ages. Each of these epoques has left its mark on the town and region. It is now more popular as a film-set, and has been seen in several films (including Tess by Roman Polanski), and as a tourist village. Numerous art and crafts abound in the vicinity, where tourists can buy local crafts. Locronan is extremely well preserved, and is built in the traditional local granite. The solid houses with traditional slate rooves are interspersed with plenty of greenery and ooze history, making for a very attractive village. The cobbled Place de l'eglise and the substantial vaulted 15th century St Ronan church are in the centre of the town, and the best place to start your visit.
