Impressive is the word that comes to mind when describing Limoges's famous railway station! It was designed by Roger Gonthier, on a spot where an old Benedictine convent used to be. The people of Limoges are extremely proud of their station. Its massive, 31 metre high copper dome and adjoining 61 metre clock-tower have been watching over Limoges since 1929. Take a step inside and look above you : the gorgeous allegorical scupltures by Henri Varenne and Art-Deco stained glass windows by Francis Chigot enhance the station's radiant beauty.
