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.
