Surrounded by hills, the chief town of the Corrèze has a medieval district with picturesque narrow streets and tall houses.
The city of Tulle is well-known for its entirely handcrafted lace. This ancient tradition, forgotten for a time, is today experiencing a real renaissance. This art is celebrated every summer during the Tulle International Lace Festival.
Tulle is also known for the manufacture of its accordions. Established in 1919, the factory of Tulle is the last accordion factory in France. To find out more about this musical instrument, a workshop introduces visitors to the various stages of manufacture and assembly. A festival of music, the "Nuits de Nacre" (Nights of Mother-of-pearl), takes place in Tulle every year in September.
