The Quartier Historique de la Cite where the cathedrale is situated is a dog free zone. Don't worry there is parking with shade along the 'Quai Louis Goujaud' and it's free. Walk up into the Cite from here and enjoy the gardens, Musee des Beaux Arts before the cathedrale!

Cathedral is situated right near the Musee De Beaux Arts in Limoges. The cathedral is lovely on the inside, although not the most ornately decorated I have seen. However the botanical gardens which surround the cathedral are so beautiful, particularly on a summers day. The cathedral is also situation on a hill so fantastic views across Limoges. Overall well worth... More

We do love a Catherdral on our visits, and i'm not the slightest bit religious a sworn atheist, where my parner is on the other hand, but we both can enjoy the Gothic architecture of this splendid cathedral and marvel at the workmanship

Tranquil and peaceful cathederal with stain glass windows. Not many visitors which made extra special to admire all the statues and work done on the windows. A worthwhile stop.

Whilst visiting the gardens and the Musée de Beaux Arts, I wondered into the cathedral for a bit of shelter from the hot sun, and I was mesmerised by the number of little chapels, their different portrayals of their patrons, and I could have spent much longer examining it if it hadnt been for my two small children wanting to...

This is a big but pretty plain cathedral. It's free to visit but there is no information in English. It would have helped the enjoyment if there was. It's good for a short visit and to shelter from the rain!

This is a beautiful and ancient cathedral filled with unexpected delights, unique decoration, atmosphere and a deep solemnity. It had a detailed timeline in the entrance foyer that described the thousands of years of history and prehistory which related to the area and the cathedral itself. Outside there was an extensive sculpture exhibition by Marc Petit; a retrospective covering 30... More

The Chuch is obviously in use as we saw children preparing for one of their sacraments. Lots of the building is left as it has aged but it's worth a short trip round.

The heavens opened as we walked around Limoges. We took sanctuary inside this fabulous cathedral, there was no request for donations. Exquisite stained glass windows and some nice explanatory signs in French only, but we were able to decipher most of it. Not their problem but ours, although it may be worth considering additional translations to further encourage visitors from... More
