Nexon is located south of Limoges, and is one of the gateway towns to the Limousin-Périgord Regional Nature Park. The town is built around the church and relics of Saint Ferréol, as well as around the castle whose park is now home to the National Circus Arts Centre. Every year in August, Nexon’s heart beats to the rhythm of its modern Circus festival called « La Route du Sirque ». Don’t miss the town’s « Jardin des Sens » (garden of the senses). Our Tourist Office affers an entire range of guided tours and a mobile app for those who wish to visit the area on their own. Our Tourist Office also invites visitors to discover the other towns in the Nexon area: Saint-Hilaire-les-Places, Janailhac, Rilhac-Lastours, Meilhac, Saint-Maurice-les-Brousses, Saint-Jean-Ligoure and Saint-Priest-Ligoure.
Nexon is also an "Ostensions" town. Ostensions are a popular and religious tradition that date back to the 10th century. These processions and festivities take place every 7 years in towns throughout Limousin and go on for several months. The next ones will take place in 2016.
