Discover the city of Limoges and its many riches


Limoges, the historic capital of the former province of Limousin, is one of the equilibrium centers of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

Since 2008, the city has joined the national network of 181 « Cities and Countries of Art and History ».
This prestigious label is awarded by the Ministry of Culture to communities that showcase their heritage and make it known to their residents and visitors.



The Limousin, now connected to Aquitaine and Poitou-Charentes, is known for its know-how in the luxury trades: porcelain, tapestry, leather, enamel … but also for its green countryside, conducive to bucolic walks.

Come and discover this city with two historic hearts, the Upper Town, former district of the Viscounts Castle, and the City, former city of the Bishop, surrounding the Saint-Etienne Cathedral.

It is also a station known throughout the world and ancestral know-how! Not to mention unique culinary specialties for the most gourmands.
