Limoges
Limoges is a mix of two neighbouring towns,that grew separately over the centuries, after the sacking of augustoritum in the Barbarian invasions,and were not united until the French Revolution. It is one of the main towns in the region, where enamels have been produced since the 12th century. Limoges is an architectural melting-pot ranging from the Jesuit severity of the XVIIc Gay-Lussac Chapel's main door,to the art deco of the Pavillion du Verdurier. The centre is mediaeval and it is worth walking around looking up more than down. It has an excellent undercover food market and shopping facilities. Many of the local restaurants are family run and offer varied inexpensive menus .

An extremely interesting city with architectural features dating from the16th and 17th Century. Périgueux has many public squares where you can relax and watch the world pass by, also close by are many cafe's and bistro's offering excellent cuisine. Located in front of the church each Wednesday morning the city plays host to a magnificent market selling local produce. A visit to the church will reveal what has to be one of the largest and most ornate altar's carved from wood.

Oradour sur Glane
This village is north west of Limoges and is a very sober reminder of the Second World War. It has been left exactly as it was after being destroyed by the German occupying army. Although this is a very poignant place it is worth visiting by both the young and old alike
