Every seven years, the Catholic church in the Limousin region holds the ‘Ostensions’, when relics of the saints are paraded in procession around many of the towns and villages of the region. To mark the occasion the streets are decorated with flags and bunting, such as these flapping in the breeze outside the cathedral of Limoges.

The Ostensions is a religious festival that takes place every seven years, over the spring and summer. 2016 is one of those years.
During this period, relics of the saints are paraded through the main towns in the region.
For the period of the Ostensions, the cathedral at Limoges and its surroundings are bedecked by colourful bunting.
