This place is very quite, you can have a walk arond the walls and have a beautiful view of Limoges, but you can also visit the botanical garden. That is a great place that was really well maintened. A must see in Limoges.

In the grounds of the cathedral, the gardens surround the old Bishop's Palace which is now part of the Museum des Beaux Artes. Apart from the plants and the views over the River Vienne, there is a spectacular water feature featuring different fountains.

It is possible to sit and do nowt in these gardens. Far away from the madding crowd. I suggest that you sit & read a good book in the shade by one of the fountains. Perfect for those who love doing such a thing! :-)

Situated in the 'quartier historique de la Cite' - a dog free zone. Don't worry, park the car in a shaded parking on the 'Quai Louis Goujaud' leaving you free to explore. The gardens are spacious with bizarre sculptures scattered around.

These botanic gardens are nice, but appear to be a little bit neglected. The lower terraces are a bit dry. The fact that the garden has got lots of stairs makes it exciting to walk, but a big challenge for strollers and wheelchairs.

Terraces overlooking the river are well planted and also provide good views of the cathedral and the 18th century bishops palace.

Well laid-out and -maintained gardens. Other areas of the city appeared a bit neglected, but there was work going on here and it was a delightful environment.
