Tulle

Trip Planner Europe  /  France  /  Nouvelle-Aquitaine  /  Correze  /  Tulle
Tulle is a commune in central France. It is the capital of the department of Corrèze, in the region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. It is also the episcopal see of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulle. It is the third-largest town in the former region of Limousin, after Limoges and Brive-la-Gaillarde.Known sometimes as "the town on seven hills", Tulle rose to prominence through the development of its manufacturing sector.HistoryBeginningInitially, the Gauls settled an oppidum at the site of what is now the Puy St Clair because it was a site surrounded by cliffs and so easy to get off. After the conquest, the city moved downwards, to the Trech district and the Romans established a temple to honor Tutela, goddess of protection of property and persons. The name of the city comes from this goddess. She was honoured here because it was a ford over the Corrèze where passed a very old road between Brittany and the Mediterranean sea. In the seventh century was built a monastery dedicated to St. Michael. The local population settled around the buildings. The first monastery, destroyed by the Viking invasions in 846, was rebuilt but disappeared in the eleventh century.
