Brive la Gaillarde

If it is said to be "gaillarde", it is probably for two reasons: coquettish and valiant, it was also a fortified town in the Middle Ages, when Gaillard meant "fortified". A welcoming, sunny town, it is adorned with a very rich historical centre, an astonishing "lighthouse-water tower" and a magnificent palette of flower gardens. Brive-la-Gaillarde knows how to cultivate the art of living well with its book fair, its rugby team and its fat fairs.
