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. Inside you will find a statue of St. Catherine and a sculptural group representing the Virgin Mary, St. Anne, and the Jesus as a child together. A painting of the Transfiguration crowns the ornate altarpiece, providing a majestic focal point.
