  • Not easy to pick the coldest of the year to visit this beautiful but frigid Cathedral. In terms of other Limoges buildings, it is effect of poor parent because she suffered attacks and the time of the Revolution and is less popular devotion as the chapel of the butchery or the Church to the two lions. To see all the same for its slender volumes and its site overlooking the Yonne, delightfully away from downtown.

  • From Limoges train station is a 15-minute walk. You can see the magnificent architecture. Important places in Santiago Compostela pilgrimage way's. Antique city is open on the holiday, it is also fun.

  • A beautiful cathedral featuring wonderful Gothic architecture. I was there on a weekday and my partner and I were the only ones there which was great.
  • Very very nice Cathedral. If visiting this Cathedral, not is can lose the garden botanical just behind, is beautiful, with sculptures in iron very shocking. The truth is that not is that meaning have, but are macabre, are referred to the death or something similar. Very nice to see plants, little tree. Admission is free and is very careful.

  • Striking Tower. Very long construction period yet of homogenous construction.
