Charlotte's Fifth Sister City Partner
Limoges was the administrative capital of the former Limousin region in west-central France, and currently, Limoges is the capital of the Haute-Vienne department. The city of Limoges was founded in 1792. On November 5, 1992, a delegation from Limoges, including Mayor Alain Rodet, visited Charlotte for the signing ceremony of our partnership. Charlotte and Limoges have had numerous fantastic events and exchanges ever since.
Charlotte and Limoges have a wonderful relationship consisting of successful local events and international exchanges. Some of our highlights include the Limoges Basketball Team Exchange, the Beaujolais Wine Tasting Festival, and the International Conference on Autism.
