  • Hard to believe such a beautiful cathedral in Limoges but it makes one realise how rich the city was in the last century with porcelain and other industries. The stained glass windows are glorious.  more »
  • The cathedral has some intersting architecture.The stained glass is absolutly fantastic and a must see.  more »
  • Overlooking the Vienne Valley, this Cathedral was built in Gothic style from the 13th to the 19th century and replaced several earlier buildings. Bishops and canons it have embellished the son of the centuries by paintings, stained glass, tombs, etc, especially in the Renaissance style. All no shortage of Majesty and absolutely worth a visit during a trip to Limoges.
