Pont-Aven is a French community, in the region of Brittany, Finistere department. It is most famous for its art. You can't even imagine the amount of art shops that were in the city, every two steps you were next to a store. There were also many biscuiteries that made you want to buy everything. Things to see and do: Visit the Museum of Fine Arts, Trémalo Chapel, the contemporary art center. Take a tour. The Tuesday morning's weekly markets handicrafts and Saturday morning food.
The Port of Pont-Aven is one of the best places to visit in the town. There is a boat preapred to sail the sea quickly when the tide comes in and the ride round the harbor is very nice. It dates from the eighteenth century, a time of prosperity for the country. From the bridge, on the left is a large rock called shoe rock or Gargantua. Its overall shape looks like a giant pretty shoe ... ugly, I must be said.
Not located in the city centre, the church was built between 1872 and 1875. The Church of San Jose, normally closed, is open every afternoon in summer. The neo-Gothic building, built of granite, has a pierced Cornish style bell located above the East Room, which serves as an entrance. Inside, the wooden ceiling is traditionally painted blue to represent the sky, with beams decorated with dragon heads. Free entrance.
L'Avent is a beautiful river that begins in Coray, at a place called "The future of the pen," at the head of the French Aven. The river runs 37 km into the forest before emerging into the sea at Port-Manech. It crosses all the way through Pont-Aven, you can tell this from the great number of mills that are in the city. Walking along the river is a very pleasant experience with great views.
