SUNDAY GUIDED TOURS - APRIL TO JUNE 2022

SPRING WALKS

On Sundays at 3pm, the Maison du Patrimoine and the Tourist Office offer thematic tours of 1.5 hours, which provide an in-depth discovery of the town around an architectural or artistic subject, a monument or a historical period. For this spring 2022, let's oxygenate the body and mind with walks in the four corners of Quimper. Put on your hiking gear and let's go for a nature walk!

SUNDAY 10 APRIL / 3pm

CANCELLED VISIT

STANGALA WALK

A geological curiosity due to the nature of the rocks and tectonic accidents, the Stangala takes on the appearance of a gorge with a steep drop down to the Odet river. In this place of legends, a guide-lecturer offers you to discover a border site between Quimper and Ergué-Gabéric.

WALK ON THE TOWPATH

Many people in Quimper use the Halage for a stroll, a Sunday jog or to cycle to work in the city centre. But do you know all the secrets of the site? Completed in 1870, this path, once linked to industry, offers a stroll of almost four kilometres along the Odet and offers a glimpse of the Cité du Gaz, the Château de Lanniron and the famous cranson des estuaires.

WALK IN THE BAY OF KEROGAN

Petrouchka, do you know it? No, we are not talking about the song by Soso Maness but about the wreck in Kerogan Bay! This natural area offers a unique biotope and heritage such as fountains, wash houses and carnivorous plants! Take advantage of this walk to rediscover an area little known to the people of Quimper, just a stone's throw from the university area.
