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.

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.

If you don't see anything else in Limoges you must see this area. Full of character with it's timbered buildings and cobbled narrow streets.

This is an area of medieval half timbered streets and cobbled streets in the centre of Limoges.Nothing much happening when i visited,maybe due to the rain and it being outside the tourists season.

We spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around this area, and stopping to have a drink. Don't miss a visit to the little chapel dedicated to butchers...
