Rochechouart is located west of Limoges near the border between Charente Limousine and de la Dordogne, and it is also a gateway town to the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park. Several million years ago, a meteorite fell here and the town’s monuments are made with impactite : rock from impact caused by the meteorite ! Be sure to visit « Espace Météorite » to find out about this phenomenon. Art fans will enjoy the town’s Contemporary art museum, located in a castle, with works by Raoul Hausmann and temporary exhibitions by young contemporary artists. Our Tourist Office organizes also invites visitors to discover the other towns in the Rochechouart area: Vayres, Chéronnac, Videix and Les Salles-Lavauguyon.
