Quimper Museum of Fine Arts

Quimper, France

The ground-floor halls of Musée des Beaux-Arts are home to some fairly morbid 16th- to 20th-century European paintings, but things lighten up on the upper levels of the town's main art museum. A room dedicated to Quimper-born poet Max Jacob includes sketches by Picasso.

This was a great little gallery in the centre of Quimper. We loved all the pictures the Klimt was a high point. There was a queue to get in but it was relatively quick and the gallery was not too crowded. There where 6 or 7 big rooms of painting and a lot of information, in French we used a app to translate.

Smaller art gallery with an impressive collection of regional artists, and even a Ruebens and a Bruegel!

A gem of a museum in a gem of an old town. Beautiful art pieces and quality temporary exhibitions. The Breton art is impressive and there are some larger pieces that are spectacular and well worth the visit just for them. The entry price is also very reasonable at 5 euros which leaves some money for a crêpe after the tour! Plan about 2h for the visit.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
