Jardin Botanique de l’Evêché

Jardin Botanique Limoges

We think one of the most beautiful spots in Limoges is the Jardin Botanique, This stunning park located on the banks of the River Vienne is a popular spot for locals to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It’s a wonderful place to take a leisurely stroll and soak up the beautiful scenery giving you glorious views across the river. Growing since 1910, this garden boasts a variety of trees, flowers, and plants, as well as several fountains, a duck pond, and a children’s play area.

 Église Saint-Michel-des-Lions

Another must-see attraction in Limoges is the Église Saint-Michel-des-Lions, a stunning church that dates back to the 14th century. The church is famous for its beautiful stained glass windows, which are considered to be some of the finest examples of stained glass art in France.

The museum houses a huge collection of porcelain, including pieces from the 18th century to the present day. You’ll enjoy learning all about porcelain production the history of the craft in Limoges.

Shopping and Dining

Cute Library Limoges

In Limoges, it’s easy to spend a day simply taking in the sights and sounds of the charming streets and squares. Be sure to explore the Quartier de la Boucherie, a historic neighbourhood filled with quaint shops and restaurants, and the Place de la Motte, a beautiful public square with a fountain and an impressive 19th-century town hall.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll definitely want to check out the covered market in Limoges, which is full of local specialities like foie gras, truffles, and of course, Limousin beef. And for a sweet treat, be sure to try the famous “bouchon de Saint-Yrieix”, a delicious pastry filled with almond cream and glazed with caramel.

Limoges truly has something for everyone, and we’re sure you’ll find yourself wanting to come back for more. With so much to see and explore, it’s hard to fit everything into just one day trip!

Our contact, Serkan, was able to answer all our questions and uncertainties and was able to show extreme flexibility in the choice of the final product.

"Nous venons de finaliser notre achat avec Halcyon et je dois dire que cela n'aurait pas été possible sans le professionalisme et la qualité de service de leur service commercial. Le fait d'avoir à faire qu'à un seul et même contact du début à la fin a été un gros plus pour nous. Notre contact, Serkan, a su répondre à toutes nos questions, incertitudes et a su faire preuve d'extrème flexibilté dans le choix du produit final. Il n'a jamais essayé de nous mettre la pression et a été très compréhensif."
