As a good French and Breton town, Guerlesquin has managed to highlight the core of the market and fair business sector. A mixture of flavour and tradition finds its place in this town. The rich heritage and culture is grand, and has allowed the city to provide a historical and artistic heritage. Buildings older than ten centuries can attest to this. It was one of the the Duke of Brittany's darlings, who was named a town in the 14th century. It changes colour depending on the time of day. The facades are disguised at all hours, a mark of extreme beauty. The colour of the granite buildings, similar to Spanish freestone, has a changing hue that makes it even more magical and inviting to visitors to stroll along its many streets and commercial areas.
