Renowned all over the world for its quality and its delicacy, the famous Limoges porcelain was first created in the 18th century with the discovery of kaolin in Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche. This material of shining whiteness, essential to the production of hard porcelain, allowed the launch the handcrafted porcelain industry in Haute-Vienne. Today, several factories perpetuate this important artistic tradition.

Not to be missed: the Adrien Dubouché national museum, in Limoges. Dedicated to the world of ceramics, this venue exhibits a large collection of hard and soft porcelains, but also collections of pottery, earthenware and stoneware.
