We intend a fairly laid back day today and when we arise we find a rather misty start. We decide to visit Quimperle , and see an exhibition of paintings by !9th century painters of the area.

On arrival we take a quick walking tour and visit the Eglise de Notre Dame de L'Assumption. It is built to mirror the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. I have visited the Jerusalemchurch but forty years ago, so my memories ...
