Capital of Ceramics
Limoges is an ancient community. During its pre-Roman period, it was the capital of a Gallic tribe called the Lemovices.
Beginning in 1771, a hard-paste porcelain industry developed near Limoges, where kaolin deposits had been discovered. By the 1800's, Limoges had become one of the largest porcelain centers in Europe.
In the old part you may a little avoid ceramics, rest and have a glass of wine (or beer, as I've this time).
The cathedral of Saint-Étienne, which was constructed between 1273 and 1520, is the city’s most imposing structure.
Limoges was founded as Augustoritum by Caesar Augustus around 10 BC. The church was erected on the Roman time ruins, and now they try to discover again the old Roman buildings.
