Aubusson has been celebrated for the extraordinary talent of its weavers for six centuries. Their tapestries and rugs have decorated the finest buildings in the world. The village itself is lovely to visit, with plenty to do for all ages, including hands-on workshops. The Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie and its Museum is the best starting point for your trip. The contemporary reconstruction immerses visitors in the world of Aubusson weaving in a way that is both engaging and informative. Visit the 16th century Maison du Tapissier - Weaver’s House - to see what it was like to be a weaver.
