It is just a street. There is a banner hanging above the street that says Quartier de la boucherie and that is about it. I didn't really notice anything else.

Again we were caught in a bit of rain. Very small district just a few square blocks. Several restaurants, few shops, cobble stone steers and old builders are well maintained and nice to view.

This is a charming area with a mixture of history and modern shopping, not to mention restaurants and cafes. It is a little hilly in places but not enough to be a proplem to most. The narrow streets are atmospheric and you will get a feel for times gone by.

The weather was lovely and the houses looked 'wonkier' than in York. The brocantes and other shops were interesting and touristy the atmosphere pleasant. Worth a visit

An old part of town that is apparently maintained by the butchers of Limoges and they do a great job with the cutest of churches and old streets. Very little actual activity but a nice ten minute walk in Limoges.

If you like gaining the views of old towns this may satisfy, though it lacks the "guardee l'eau" risk of a re-enactment. Lacked the characters, the smell and the noises -which would probably have sent you and me quickly away.

It was a very nice historic street with old houses. One of the houses were the butchers'lived could be visited and there were a few girls who showed us around who were very enthusiastic.

Lovely old streets with character and characters abundant. Lots of olde worlde shops. A variety of cafés and bars to sample. Spent an hour or so wandering and soaking up the atmosphere.

This quartier feels so good. Is it authentic? It is certainly not too touristic. Right balance between shops, monuments, old houses, pedestrian areas ...

Like walking through the ages as you wander along the alley ways and small streets a quick look up reveals an amazing array of Middle Ages style houses and buildings. If your in Limoges take a walk and see then visit some of the many small restaurants and cafés to take in the atmosphere.
