The town of Magnac-Bourg
The Porcelaine industry has made Limoges and its firms world famous. You can for example visit Haviland's museum with its fine examples of porcelaine.
Limoges is also the capital of the arts of fire having gained this distinction thanks to the production of highly sophisticated enamelworks.
For lovers of architecture, Limoges-Bénedictins train station, one of the most beautiful in Europe with its 60 meters Campanile, became one of the town's landmarks.
This rural district is well known for its national stud, its presentation of thoroughbred Anglo-arab and draught horses which are highly recognised abroad.
