two hours strolling around these beautiful streets oozing with atmosphere. Suddenly there's an opening that becomes steps leading up to another street - delightful.

A small but homogenous quarter of Limoges with its half-timbered houses and romantic narrow roads. But regrettably as in so many French cities a lot of shops is abandoned and neglected - on the whole this gives a romantic but also very sad impression!!

Interesting and free to browse round at your leisure. Just off main Boulevard Gambetta. Pedestrian area with independent shops in very old buildings.

The centre of historic Limoges is dotted with architecture from the middle ages through the revolution to the belle epoque. What is special about La Boucherie is that is a complete small street of medaeval buildings forming the butchery quarter of old Limoges. Many but not all of the shop fronts are preserved and one of the houses takes the... More

Actually great, number 16 on the Red Route walking tour, there is one house that you can tour. Our guide around this house spoke English and gave us a very good insight into how people lived in the street up to the early 1900's. The butches were very rich and powerful people, even though the street was probably very smelly,... More

medieval buildings but so clean and fresh - makes it easy to envisage how life would have been but now chi chi shops and boutiques provide plenty of choice for window shopping

This is an area full of yesteryear charm and character. Beautifully restored and protected area, forming the original city of Limoges, the butchers' district. Take the time to stroll around, looking up towards the rooves of the houses, to take in the history....also look out for dates carved in the stones surrounding the front entrance doors. Also lots of interesting... More
