This district with its cobbled streets and fine, medieval (restored) half-timbered houses and shops was once under the control of six families who ran a sort of butcher's cartel in bygone days. The same families still own the chapel of St Aurelean which must rate as one of the smallest, oldest and most elaborately atmospheric interiors in the city. Quite... More

Take a trip back into the middle ages - although you will miss the tripe makers and butchers that give this quarter its name.

There's liquid refreshment for you to pause by the tiny Chapelle St Aurelian and take in the warehouse, stores... More

But don't keep your head down many historic and ancient religious aspects are about your eyeline in walls and fronts of buildings. Take time to visit the Chapel near the square and... More

Walked around the old town, which extends beyond La Boucherie - don't miss the other streets. It was deserted and dark on a crisp February evening. Atmospheric. You'll enjoy it.

There is not much to see in Limoges, but the town it's beautiful and the architecture is really beautiful. It is worth walking around on the streets, the little alleys and just enjoy the small shops and pop up stalls .

A little gem of a street, as you turn the corner . At the bottom of the street there is a small church tucked away on the right. The church is called Chapelle Saint-Aurelien.
