If you are planning a trip to Brittany be sure to take a pre-departure virtual tour of Quimper. Eric Calais, a native Quimpérois now living in San Diego, has developed an impressive interactive site on his native region's history. A culture section features excerpts from literary works related to Brittany by Max Jacob, Per Jakez-Helias, Xavier Grall and more; a dozen sound samples of traditional music; the language of Quimper and its surroundings; origins of the Celts; as well as a selection of anecdotes.
