Quimper is the capital of the region of Cornouaille (Cornwall) and suggests the original route of migration for 5-7th century Britons.

Saint-Corentin, the patron saint of Quimper and its first bishop,preserves this Cornish connexion: he is also the patron saint of Cury, in Cornwall.
His iconography, as seen in Quimper's cathedral, features a miraculous fish which, when eaten, would re-grow its missing parts.

Quimper, with its waterways, footbridges and medieval architecture is a pretty cool place to visit.
