From Paris, take the TGV and stop at Quimper (Kemper in local language). The travel lasts 4H30.
Then, rent a car and Audierne is at 40 Km (30mn) by D 784.
The washing place of the city was the gathering point of the femal inhabitants of Audierne.
They talked about the boats which were away with their husbands.
Fondest memory: Look carefully at these rocks. They shelter Mary Morgan, the mermaid. May be you will see her long hair.
Typical little chapel, completly surrounded by its stone wall.
A miraculous fountain nearby is known to cure all the pains.
Fondest memory: When the fishers are in danger, the bell of the chapel rings without any human action.
The Dead Men Bay is located at the West end of France, between the Pointe du Raz and the Pointe du Van.
Fondest memory: It is so called because (according to the legend), the dead druids were transported by boat to the Sein Island to be buried.
An other legend tells one listens when the wind blows the voices of the fishers missing in the ocean.
