Origin of the breton galettes

The worldwide reknown galettes and palets of Pont-Aven are now a strong symbol of Bretagne. Great to go with a toddy or as a dessert, these delicious biscuits made of flour, butter, sugar and eggs will delight your taste buds!

Fabricated by local bakers since the XVIIth century, the creation of the proper “galettes de Pont-Aven” dates back to 1890, when Isidore Penven succeded to his father at the head of the bamily bakery, located in the neighborhood of the bridge. Thanks to these little salted-butter delicacies, Pont-Aven has been rewarded with the “Remarkable Taste Site” label.

The success of the galettes of Pont-Aven quickly turned them into the emblem of the so-called City of Painters!
