Limoges, town of art and history

Town of art and history and capital of the Fire Arts, Limoges is a town well worth the visit.

Continue your visit at the Casseaux kiln, listed as a Historical Monument, then the Fine Arts Museum and its superb collection of Limousin enamels of all eras, Impressionist paintings and Gallo-Roman objects.





Limoges, town and art of history


The historical quarters deliver up their treasures to an attentive walker: the town, the cathedral surroundings with its gardens that descend towards the Vienne, or the delicious village of la Boucherie and its steep streets. 

In Limoges you can appreciate the different architectural styles: metallic (the Halles), art deco (Bénédictins station, Verdurier pavillion), half-timbered houses (around the cathedral), private mansion houses (Cour du Temple)... For more than one reason, Limoges deserves a long visit.
