And another day, August 1st, we visited Quimper, another of Brittany's larger towns, and capital of the department of Finistere.
Main square

Another half-timbered heaven

A main interest for me, Quimper's Cathedral
St. Corentin

Mainly because of its interesting curvature

The nave and the chancel are headed in slightly different directions...

Nice old windows

Some carving of interest

Wall of the cathedral precinct


But the main interest of the day was the carousel

Note stripey coordinates

Not just any carousel; Jules Verne was from Nantes, the largest
city in traditional Brittany (now in the Loire-Atlantique department)

Around the world in 80 days...

The Nautilus

Pretty town, Quimper

I have a tea set from Quimper. The pottery/china from there is my favorite...just wish I could afford more!
