A few kilometers from our hotel, Limoges, City of Art and History, world famous for its porcelain and the arts of fire that are enamel and stained glass, offers visitors a rich heritage and a relaxed lifestyle characterized by the presence of numerous parks and gardens.
It is a city where two historic hearts beat: the High City, the former district of the Castle of Viscounts with its half-timbered houses and the city surrounding the Gothic St. Etienne, richly decorated with sculptures of the 14th and 16th centuries.
The Benedictine railway station, considered one of the most beautiful railway stations in France will surprise you with its splendid cupola and 60 m high bell tower with its art-deco stained glass.
