Nowadays only ruins remind of those facilities. They are precious to the local people as they sure have historical value. One more ancient and precious destination of the city is the library of Saint Martin. The library contains 23 thousand of books. The library works in the abbey and today this is a museum and a center of art. The main sight of this place is the tomb of the saint that has been founded recently. Besides these memorial sights Limoges surely has other places of interest. Guests are suggested to visit ecclesiastical seminary and the lyceum that works near it, a school in which are prepared doctors and pharmaceutical chemists, a picture gallery, and a granite cathedral Saint Etienne built in XII century famous by its tilted bell tower, a granite archbishop’s palace with amazing garden, the ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheater, and the house of Templar knights with a gallery of underground passages and rooms.
