"The village of the musical market" Guerlesquin by Mikebond

Guerlesquin Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 84 photos

Guerlesquin lies near Morlaix. Six days a week, it's a small village as there are hundreds in Bretagne.
But on Mondays... it's another story. Monday is the day of the traditional musical market of Guerlesquin. Breton bands go through the streets of the market and let tourists and local people enjoy their music.
However, you shouldn't forget to visit the church of Saint Ténénan, the ancient prisons and more...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a typical Breton village
  • Cons:a little isolated
  • In a nutshell:it offers the essence of the Breton soul!

    Nice page on this interesting little town. La salle de bain at the castle was unique but dangerous looking in you're outside. Loved the little animals!

    That would be nice to see (Musical Market), but I don't know when that'll happen. Thanks! =)

    C'est intéressant cette parade des bagadou dans la ville! Il semble que Guerlesquin se trouve vraiment dans la Bretagne Bretonnante!

    Wonderful photos in your travelogues. I love the one of the flag, French bread & small boy. Very Breton! (~_~)
