The catholic is a brilliant execution in Gothic architecture. One feature in particular makes it stand out from others – there is a ‘kink’ – that is, as it rises, it seems to bend when seen from above.

Jean-Marie de Silguy bequeathed his art collection of 1200 paintings and 2000 drawings to Quimper on the condition that a museum would be built to house them. Today, most of the works here are by western European painters, Bretons, Flemish, Italian, and Dutch painters. Their special exhibitions are usually very good.
