Within the walled city there is a very interesting fisheries museum which is well worth a visit for those with an interest in fishing and fishing boats, more an old style establishment with factual exhibits rather than state of the art interpretations.

Concarneau (Breton: Konk Kerne, meaning Bay of Cornwall) is a commune in the Finistère department in Bretagne in northwestern France.
The town has two distinct areas: the modern town on the mainland and the medieval Ville Close, a walled town on a long island in the centre of the harbour. The Ville Close is now devoted to tourism with many restaurants and shops aimed at tourists. However restraint has been shown in resisting the worst excesses of souvenir shops.

Pont-Aven is mainly known because of the group of artists who flocked round Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin, and who were joined in 1888 by Paul Sérusier. They were collectively known as "Pont-Aven School" (French: École de Pont-Aven, Breton: Skol Pont-Aven).
