Known as the town on the seven hills and the accordion capital, Tulle is also famous for its lace.
Its picturesque historic core, with its welcoming ambiance, old houses, traditional stairs, and Romano-Gothic cathedral, will charm and delight you.
The cathedral is undoubtedly the town’s main attraction, and visitors flock here to admire its beautiful façade, complete with an enormous stained-glass window.
Adjoining the cathedral is a thirteenth-century Gothic cloister with a tranquil medieval garden and a museum featuring pieces of the town’s past, including paintings, drawings, and fragments of its “poinct de Tulle” lace.
You can also learn more about this ancient art form by visiting the Poinct de Tulle studio on Place Émile Zola.
Other things to do here include wandering around the town center to admire some of its remarkable architecture and, of course, paying a visit to Maison Maugein, the oldest accordion manufacturer in France.
And if you happen to visit in September, be sure not to miss the popular Nuits de Nacre Festival, when the sound of accordion music fills the streets.
