The spacious and atmospheric church houses the remains of Saint Martial, Saints Valerie, and Saint Loup - important figures in the history of Limoges and the Limousin. The stained glass in the church is also worth taking a look at, and note the delicate columns...More

This church is accessible from a lot of different doors and once inside it is beautiful, calm and the stained glass is superb from pictures of people to an abstract of tongues around the font.

Really a nice church. Super art, grounds around the church are very nice. One actually enters by going thru the bell tower. Next to the Museum of the area in the old district down by the river.

We enjoyed walking around this church and the area around it. An old area with lots of history. Mass is still held here. "This is the site of an earlier chapel dedicated to the archangel Michael that was close to the roman Limoges-Saintes road. This...More
