A popular manifestation with a wonderful fullness, that has took place in the region of Limousin for over 1000 years
Every 7 years, the population brings to life the procession and the exposition of the relics of their patron St. Leonard, just as they happened for the first time in 1094 and permitted the healing of the sick caused by the plague called “Le Mal des Ardents”.
All the inhabitants got together in a combined effort between all the different people, believers or not, in order to decorate the town and to welcome the visitors and pilgrims.
It’s the opportunity to welcome the many delegations who come from Europe and Africa, from the towns and parishes named “Saint Leonard”.
In 2009, during the last “Ostensions”, a crowd of over 10000 people came to take part in the event.
