Limoges is the warmest city of France. It is famous by its porcelain and ceramic items of XIX century, by splendid local applied art, the basis of which is in the creation of coated ware combined with the saults of metals (enamel), and by oak barrels that are used to make cognac.
Initially Limoges was founded by the Romans yet in X century BC. The city’s religion was paganism, but steadily Limoges was turned into Christianity by Saint Martin. This process ended in 250 AD. In the beginning of XIII century Limoges was already a large town, the central part of which consisted of two protective facilities joined by the bridge of Saint Etienne. One part of the facility was the town itself. It was surrounded by walls and built along the River Vienna. The second part of the protective facility was the castle of the abbey founded in this place in XI century.
