  • This Chapel of the 15th century serves as sanctuary for 2 ° Bishop of Limoges, St. Aurélien. The first being, for the record, St Martial. She has the distinction of belonging to a private entity. Despite this it is still consecrated, and the place of religious ceremonies. Its bell tower is particularly interesting, and inside will most certainly appreciated by connoisseurs. Truly worth it. What is more, she if located in the "old Limoges" with the famous street of the butcher shop two, dating from the middle ages.
