Centre-ville de Quéven

Lying between the town and the countryside

Quéven has 9 015 inhabitants. It is surrounded by 2 392 hectares of tranquil, green countryside. Discover the estuary of the Scorff, the Roze salt marshes and Kercadoret wood, the Scave stream, and Kerzec park, an oasis of 11 hectares in the centre of the town. There are plenty of activities on offer: canoë-kayak, rowing, walking, horse-riding, cycling, golf, etc. Culturally, the library of Les Sources and the cultural centre les Arcs with its Youth Pole are open in the heart of the town.

Must see:

  • Kerzec park: 11 hectares in the heart of the town. Nearby is the 17th century rural house (Kergalant Brazh) with only one room on the ground floor, one window and one door.
  • Le Roze mudflats (20 hectares): this is the ecologically richest part of the estuary. It contains in particular one very rare plant: the marsh marigold.
  • Kercadoret wood, 1.5 km long houses impressive quarries. The path brings you through the Le Roze marshes and you may see birds of prey (hawks, kestrels, buzzards and owls).
  • The parish church and its cross: the first traces of this church go back to 1676 when it was extended. The 17th century cross is said to be the work of Roland Doré also responsible for some magnificent enclosures and crosses in the Finistère.
  • The chapel of Saint-Nicodème (16th century): polychromatic statues dating from the 18th century top the building.
  • Manoir de Kerlébert: the oldest part dates from the 17th century.
  • Kerroc'h tumulus: at the entrance to Quéven golf course, this monument dates from the neolithic era.
