Outings from Chateau de la Cazine: Exploring the City of Limoges

When you’re only 35 minutes away from the beautiful historic city of Limoges, a visit there is a must! Let’s explore what this charming city in the heart of Central France has in store for you.


Discover the Porcelain Legacy

Limoges is famed for its porcelain craftsmanship, a tradition that’s been woven into the fabric of the city since the middle ages. Step into the workshops of Ateliers Arquie or Bernardaud, or  Legle for guided tours to witness the dedication and skill behind these exquisite creations. Keep your eyes peeled for delicate porcelain accents dotted around the entire city; on benches, road signs, and fountains, and head to the tourist office to take part in The Porcelain Trail which will guide you to spot them all.

Immerse yourself in Heritage and Culture

With roots tracing all the way back to Roman times, Limoges boasts a rich tapestry of history and culture. We recommend a wander through the Old Town and its Cour du Temple, where time seems to stand still surrounded by quaint half-timbered houses as you sip on your coffee and watch the world go by. Dive into the local art scene at the Limoges Musée des Beaux Arts set among terraced gardens and overlooking the Vienne valley, or the Musee National Adrien Debouche, housing the world’s largest collection of Limoges porcelain.
