Limoges is a city in south-western France, located in the Haute-Vienne department of the Limousin region. The city made a name for itself back in the Middle Ages with the Saint-Martial Abbey. It is still sometimes referred to today as the “Red City” or the “Rome of Socialism” because of its highly leftist voting records, which have been consistent since the 19th century. The city is today a university town and administrative centre with all the amenities of a typical metropolitan region. Its greater metropolitan area is home to close to 280,000 inhabitants, with 139,000 people living in the actual city.
Limoges is particularly well known for its butchers, and is also a world leader in electrical equipment production and in the fashion production industry. It is the self-proclaimed “fire crafts capital” because of the many porcelain, enamel, ceramic and stained glass companies that call the city home. On the western foothills of the Massif Central, Limoges is traversed by the Vienna River, upon which the city was originally founded.
