Rue du Guéodet

Rue du Guéodet is home to the strange Caryatides House, also called the house of "Heads" (16C). The ground floor is decorated with men and women in Henry II costumes who are inhabitants of Quimper who emerged victorious from the Ligue War in the battle against Marshal d'Aumont, hence their smiling faces!
