  • 3 possible entries in this white stone church, very, very clear and welcoming! Beautiful stained glass!

  • This church located in the heart of the city of Limoges is also worth visiting. From the outside, it looks small but what a surprise by entering. This place is very soothing with its indoor fountain.

  • It is a beautiful church in the old town of Limoges. Magnificence of stained-glass Windows was fine. I visited after the mass on Sunday, but lingering is also rich in, a feeling of reverence.
