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.

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...

OK, so if you are European, maybe this is not all that great; but for someone from the US where not many things are even 200 years old, much less 600 years old, it was pretty amazing. A lot of these old timbered buildings that lean and look super old, yet people still live in them right in the heart... More

We were disappointed by our visit here. We visited around 4pm but only a few shops were open. We felt there was not a lot to see. There was not a lot on offer as a visual experience and, if you have visted Strasbourg to see similar architecture, you may well be as disappointed as we were.

We went here having been trapped by the noon-time shutdown of the town; everything but the restaurants was closed! The buildings were unique and lovely to look at.

Being from a Medieval English town, it was fascinating to see this beautiful Medieval quarter in Limoges, as the buildings are quite big for English standards. Just gorgeous.

This is a 'must' if you are in Limoges. The area is full of ancient timbered buildings, (would be Tudor if the UK) tiny little roads even tinier church, a real step back in time.
