Cathédrale Notre-Dame

Built in the 12th century on the site of a first monastery, then transformed into a cathedral in 1317, it took almost two centuries of work to complete the construction of this building. The original Romanesque plan was to be evaluated over the centuries and replaced by a light, airy and slender Gothic style, as evidenced by the 73-metre high bell tower of the Cathedral, which is the highest bell tower in the Limousin. With its choir and transept removed, it contains spectacular works, including the Great Organs built in 1839 and listed as a Historic Monument, and its immense stained glass window with its deep blue tones which tells the story of the Lunade. This miraculous procession put an end to a terrible period of plague in the 14th century, and even today, more than 8 centuries later, it is still held every year, attracting a large number of faithful.
