Historical beautiful monument. One of most beautiful one. Very calm and will give you healing sensation. After seeing inside, please walk about 5 mins to see it from other side of river passing through the oldest bridge. With river and cathedral is also amazingly beautiful. Bridge and old town near it are nice to see too.

A beautiful cathedral. One of the most breathtaking sights in limoges. It is a little dark inside and a little chilly so bring a coat or a sweater. The church was decorated for Christmas and simply divine.

This cathedral is very severe in the Gothic, but the stained glass windows are beautiful. Worth a visit.

It's always amazing when entering a Cathedral like this . So much history and culture to absorb and take in. We spent ages looking at everything and learning about a place we stumbled upon by accident

A very interesting cathedral in a lovely old part of Limoges. Lots of interesting gargoyles on the outside of the cathedral and a fifteen minute walk around inside to admire the beauty of the stained glass windows. Signs inside were all in French but a leaflet in English and other languages would be great to appreciate the history of the... More

Lovely building with lots of history. I enjoyed the lovely stained glass and the paintings in the chapels. Built on an old pagan site..it doesn't quite face east. The gardens surrounding the cathedral are worth a visit also.

Visited cathedral during a hot June day. Despite being busy with many visitors including school parties the cathedral remains a serene play either to visit or worship in. Gothic in origin it is certainly worth a visit which can be incorporated with a visit to the botanic gardens which are adjacent as is the musee L'Eveche.

One could say, well it's just another cathedral but if you love architectural nuances it shouldn't be missed. Actually you can't really because it is centrally located and certainly stands out. Art lovers will also get their money worth (entry is free of course) with some renaissance works and frescoes in the Romanesque crypt. Definitely worth a visit.
