Take off for Limoges, capital of the Limousin region!

Discover a lively town, famous for its heritage and its expertise in the art of firing porcelain.

With its museums, peaceful gardens and welcoming atmosphere, Limoges offers visitors an experience that is both authentic and memorable. Art lovers will marvel at Limoges porcelain and enamelware, which is famous all over the world. The National Adrien Dubouché Museum boasts the most important collection of Limoges porcelain in the world, with more than 5000 works on show. At the Museum of Fine Arts, housed in the ancient episcopal Bishop's Palace, the emphasis is on the history of the city's medieval enamel, with a collection of world-wide renown. A garden provides a place to rest, and the museum is free on the first Sunday of the month. 

Lovers of architecture will appreciate the Gothic, Romanesque and Renaissance influences in the magnificent cathedral of Saint-Étienne de Limoges. It dates from around the 11th century, but took 6 centuries to finish, and some chapels still have wall paintings. Then explore the picturesque alleyways of the medieval quarter, sample the local cuisine, or take a walk in l'Evêché gardens. The economic vitality of Limousin's capital, a business base for many well-established companies, owes a lot to the long tradition connected with its skills in firing porcelain, enamel, stained glass, and also ceramics.

Situated in the historic centre of Limoges and near the covered market, the Boucherie quarter (butcher's district) is known for its picturesque streets, lined with colourful mediaeval half-timbered dwellings. Number 36 has been fitted with the tools of the trade for visitors to look back in time. You can get lost in its labyrinth of little squares and alleys, among the aromas from the eating places.

Take a walk along the Vienne river

A pleasant stroll awaits you along the Vienne river, which crosses the city of Limoges. Your itinerary follows shaded walkways, where you can admire picturesque views, historic bridges, and several parks and green spaces like the Evêché Botanic Gardens, or the riverside park on the edge of the Vienne.

Jardin de l'Evêché

Wander through the Evêché gardens

In the heart of Limoges, these well-maintained gardens are set out on 6 linked terraces behind the cathedral, surrounding the old Bishop's Palace. French parterres are arranged to open out onto expansive vistas towards the river and its rowers. Each section has a theme, and you can admire rare exotic plants, next to protected species from the local area, all named. Rest on one of the many benches, and enjoy the fountains of the stunning water feature, and the aquatic plants. 

Oradour

Pay your respects at Oradour-sur-Glasne

This martyred village bears testimony to its tragic destruction during the Second World War. The original village was abandoned, and the ruins are now a focus for remembrance, while a museum covers the events that led to this barbaric act. It's an emotional experience, but helps to ensure that it is never forgotten, and is never repeated elsewhere.
