Eymoutiers is located between Limoges and lake Vassivière, in the heart of the Millevaches Regional Nature Park in the area called “Pays Monts et Barrages”. It has an “Art and History area” label as well as a « Station verte » eco-label. This once fortified town has a remarkable architectural heritage, mainly due to its leather-tanning past. Don’t miss Saint Etienne collegiate church with its unique 16 glass panes representing religious and civil scenes as well as various saints. The town also has a contemporary art centre : Espace Paul Rebeyrolle. And is you have a sweet tooth, be sure to try Eymoutiers’s famous almond, hazelnut and chocolate specily called « Pelauds”!
