Limousin thematic routes


Medieval history is inseparable from Limousin.

  • The famous Richard the Lionheart gave his name to a tourist route dotted with many medieval castles and heritage wonders.
  • Of some only a few vestiges remain, such as the chahervix.
  • Others, on the other hand, still proudly raise their silhouette like the Bonneval castle - in the same family since its construction in the XNUMXth century! -,
  • and, above all, the superb Châlus castle, in front of which Richard the Lionheart was mortally wounded with a crossbow bolt.
  • And if you still want to go back to the Middle Ages, at the gates of Limoges, the site of Châlucet castle perched on its promontory is also superb.
  • Another stronghold, perched well, the fortress of Crozant castle, never taken!
  • A bit later, the Villemonteix castle  with keep, walkway and watchtowers. It has not aged a bit, and houses formidable collections of tapestries.
  • The castle of Boussac is populated by collections of all kinds.
  • State within State, Turenne  has preserved from its heyday a castle whose remains still have a proud appearance.
  • Just like the village of Curemonte , whose towers of the three castles perched on the hill can be admired from afar.
  • Without forgetting, for a complete overview, the towers of the fortress of Merle.

History has bequeathed an exceptional heritage, most often a pretext for superb walks with picturesque viewpoints. A great trip, and not only in time!
