The little village of Guimiliau owes its fame to its remarkable parish close, one of the finest in Finistère, and to the superb decoration of its church furniture. The settlement's name comes from the word "Gwik", meaning bourg or village, and Miliau, the local patron saint. Legend has it that in the 6C Miliau, Prince of Cornwall, was beheaded by his brother. Ever since he has been shown with a sword and a sceptre: symbols of the crime to which he fell victim.
