Limoges is the capital of ceramic, porcelain, enamel and stained glass production. Book a flight for your trip to Limoges and explore this culturally and architecturally rich hub. Visit Saint- Étienne Cathedral with its view over the Vienne River, Bénédictins Railway Station and its majestic clock tower or the Museum of the Resistance, a powerful ode to Limoges’ wartime history. The old town centre evokes medieval times, with timber-framed houses, whilst Les Halles is an exemplary piece of 19th Century architecture. Take time during your trip to Limoges to wander around the Jardins de l’Évêché and along the banks of the Vienne, where you can visit old porcelain kilns in the Casseaux quarter. This is the birthplace of Renoir, who painted ceramics as a boy before being propelled to fame as an Impressionist icon. There’s also the futuristic ESTER Limoges Science Park, which hosts fairs and exhibitions. Reserve a hotel room in Limoges, just a stone’s throw from its famous landmarks. A holiday in Limoges is one for food-lovers…sample the pork-based ‘soupe bréjaude au lard’, pork scratchings (from black-bottomed pigs!), potato pâté and the delicious hazelnut ‘gâteau creusois’. And once you’ve had a little nap, you’ll be ready to hit the sights and sounds.
