Locmaria  QUIMPER

Created in 1690, HENRIOT-QUIMPER has since continued to innovate, to appeal to artists.
She continues to make known her know-how throughout the world: the stroke of a brush, and hand-made, from shape design to hand-hand decoration.

at the Prioress of Locmaria

Situated along the Odet, close to the priory, the garden has been equipped since 1997 with aromatic and medieval plants in the spirit of the gardens of monasteries of the Anne de Bretagne period (1477-1514). Religious symbolism is present. At its centre, a kiosk houses a fountain whose water, symbol of life and purification, flows like the rivers that once irrigated paradise. The oak pergola recalls the celestial vault, the aisles form crosses…

Open from 9.00am to 18.00pm - free entrance

Place Berardier - Locmaria - 29000 Quimper


Beautiful example of the beginnings of Breton Romanesque architecture: the volumes are perfectly visible and regular, the exterior is very sober. It was modified in the 12th and 6th centuries by the addition of a Gothic portal arched with warheads. The plan is very regular and has a nave of six bays, with a slight transept and a staggered bedside. The nave, dating from the eleventh century. is the oldest part of the church. The church is flanked by a 16th-century cloister along the south side. Its plan is in the form of L. It was built of limestone and has a dozen arcades in semicircular. 2019 she celebrates her 1000 years! This one needs urgent restoration.

School of art embroidery

With the Quimper Art Embroidery School that he created, Pascal Jaouen gave a serious youthful to the traditional embroidery: “Stylist embroidery” iconoclastic and facetic, he knows better than anyone else how to embed traditional embroidery in our time with creations (clothes, table arts, etc.) of a striking modernity.

The Embroidery School of Art Pascal Jaouen offers regular classes during the school year. Year, Quarter, and Quarter Registration
