... of Saint Loup who was Bishop of Limoges in the 7th Century, and whose remains are preserved in the church. The Bishop was (supposedly) responsible for many miracles during his life. Every year, on 22 May, there is a parade through the streets of Limoges to honour the Saint, and St Loup's skull is carried in a gold container, partially open so that people can kiss it and hope for a miracle.

After this we made our way to Limoges where we were staying for the night.
In the evening we went for a Chinese 'eat all you can' buffet. And we did!
