    Favorite thing: again my best past time is to walk these wonderful towns anywhere, and Pont Aven is no exception. History, quaint streets, beautiful parks and gardens, canals with river passing thru ,the aven,and nice architecture.

    You get to know more the town and its people, take a walk, go ahead dare, you will be alright, We Speak English here.

    Fondest memory: walking in city center and in time to see the small veggie market by the hotel de ville.

    Favorite thing: Théodore-Botrel was born in Dinan in 1868. He bacame a very popular singer, deriving his inspiration from Breton culture and writing lyrics and poetry.
    Unfit for military service in WW1 he wrote many patriotic songs and became known as the Miltary Troubadour.
    He made his home in Pont-Aven and was active in supporting local folklore traditions.After his death in 1925 the river quai was named after him and a stature erected in his memory.

    In 1930 the annual Festival of the Gorse (d'Ajoncs) was established in his memory; held on the first Sunday of August it lasts two days during which the Festival Queen is crowned.

    Please note festival photo borrowed from tourist leaflet as I have not been in Pont-Aven in August.
