International relations

Twinning, networking and partnerships: Limoges has taken globalisation fully on board. The town supports associations with international projects, in particular those that are working for development. The town also directly sets up international solidarity actions.


Renowned for its enamel as early as the Middle Ages, Limoges went on to achieve international fame for its porcelain. The town has confirmed its status as the European ceramic centre, attracting researchers and artists from all over the world. The international Francophonies Festival, the La Borie European Centre for Baroque Music, and the European Festival on Infancy also attract many artists.
