A treasure trove of Baroque decor and religious icons, Chapelle Saint Aurelien was originally built to house the relics of St. Aurelius, the second bishop of Limoges. Later the building was enlarged to be a functioning church.

A painting of the Transfiguration crowns the ornate altarpiece, providing a majestic focal point.

  • This private chapel open daily to the public is a wonderful place to meditation, and a must-see tourist spot. It contains some very interesting things that attest to its long history. A must see in this typical neighbourhood of the old limoges.

  • Small chapel in the rue des Bouchers. Very special, still bother to drop in. The Interior looks like a Brocantzaak. Good to take that left and right to read written information. It gives the whole content.

  • This is a beautiful little chapel although quite difficult to find. Not large but with a very peaceful atmosphere where you can pray, or just contemplate the meaning of life. It is set in the old part of Limoges and has an amazing carved stone cross by its entrance.
  • This tiny chapel is really cool. Not a lot to see, but it us very old. And it's tiny, girls love tiny things. Like a tiny pain au chocolat
  • Beautiful Chapelle. If you are in the area, add it to your must visit list.
  • Nice Chapel
