Limoges

December 24, 2021

Today’s spot of the day is the porcelain city, also known as Limoges. Its history has led to an extraordinary present-day of growth and success.

From Rivers to Prosperity 

If you can imagine walking through Limoges for a day, what would the aged building structures say? I’m certain they would have a lot to tell; a beautiful history birthed from a land that started with just hills and a river. 

According to history, Limoges was just land that was eventually inhabited by Roman Settlers. Over time, buildings were built and businesses grew. The city eventually became quite prosperous and rich many centuries later, thanks to its residents. Also, the discovery of kaolin also added to Limoges’ growth, eventually starting the porcelain industry.

A Day in Porcelain City

You’ve heard the history of Limoges, now imagine you’re walking through the city in the present? What sights would you see? Are you wondering what place to visit first? Let’s stop by the Museum of Fine Arts, where you’ll see a plethora of beautiful porcelain and ceramic statutes. Each statue tells of a time in history: a time of romance, a time of war, and a time of wealth.

There is so much more to explore in the porcelain city; cathedrals, medieval castles, and cobblestone streets. Take your time as you continue to explore Limoges.

    You need to indicate the country in all of your stories.

    Hi James,
    Limoges looks beautiful, for sure, and your article makes me want to visit someday- but it never mentions what country it’s in! Google to the rescue for France :). Thanks for a great read and best wishes for a happy, healthy 2022!

    O.K. Most people have never heard of or don’t even know where Limoges is. When you present these signature cities, please list the area, country, etc. so more will be informed.
