Bitter-sweet pleasure: On the Route du Cidre en Cornouaille
Cider has been produced in the former Breton kingdom of Cornouaille since the 14th century. Since 2000, the cider from the department of Finistère has been awarded the title of "Protected Designation of Origin". Its particularity is the interplay of sweet and bitter apple varieties from which it is made and which sets Cornouaille cider apart from other terroirs.
The Cornouaille Apple Route takes visitors to 16 cideries that offer an insight into traditional production methods and invite visitors to taste. Architectural gems await to the left and right of the path, such as medieval Locronan with its Renaissance houses. Or charming historic gardens such as the Jardin Chateau de Lanniron, the Jardin du prieuré de Locmaria or the parc botanique de Cornouaille.
