  • The chapel Saint Aurélien is located in the area of street meat, a few tens of meters of les Halles. Feel free to push the door of the place. The hotel is very richly decorated, witness of ancient times. The chapel houses the relics of Saint Aurélien, Bishop of Limoges. The baroque altarpiece which the Center is occupied by a table representing the Transfiguration hide hunting houses the relics of saint Aurélien.

  • The Chapel is interesting by its size and its location in the historic district of meat.

  • See knowledge of its history, from the street of butchers and meat. Do not miss the Gallery of the channel just next door, brassware and fire art...
