Visitors to the Limousin will be surprised by the variety of its landscapes: the Dordogne and Vienne valleys, the peat bogs of the Millevaches Plateau, the moors and the heathers of the Monts d'Ambazac and Lake Vassivière. Anglers will be delighted by the variety of fish to be found in 11,000 km of first category rivers, 700 km of second category rivers, 5,000 hectares of lakes and more than 3,000 ponds.
The artists and artisans of the Limousin region, in Aubusson, Limoges and Tulle, are world-famous for their tapestries, enamels, porcelain and tulle netting.
The region is one of the birthplaces of Romanesque architecture and is home to the first octagonal church steeples: those of the abbey churches of Aubazine, Bénévent-l'Abbaye and Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat are remarkable examples.
Don't forget to try the region's produce: high-quality meats, trout, pike, crayfish, truffles and cèpes. And try some of the specialities, such as the "Bréjaude", a lard soup, or the black cherry "Clafoutis".
