Limoges Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church located in Limoges, France. It is a national monument and the seat of the Bishop of Limoges. The cathedral is in the Gothic, Renaissance and Romanesque architectural styles.

The construction of the church began in 1273 and finished only in 1888, when the nave was connected to the belltower. It is noted for its Renaissance rood screen built in 1534, and for the fine, partly octagonal, bell tower.

The main artistic works in the cathedral are its Renaissance rood screen, now moved to the western end of the nave and the tomb of the bishop Jean de Langeac, with sculpted scenes of the Apocalypse.
