Uzerche (Usercha in Occitan) is a commune in the Corrèze department in the Limousin region of central France. In 1787, the English writer Arthur Young, described the town as " the pearl of the Limousin", because of its picturesque setting. It is still widely known by this name.Built on top of a rocky outcrop, surrounded by the meandering Vézère which it dominates, Uzerche possesses a rich cultural heritage. It is known both as a centre of influence and as an important focal point for the intersection of two major routes. Also under Pepin the Short the city was the seat of an influential abbey and a Seneschal. As a result of this legacy Uzerche still has many castles, hotels and other buildings displaying turrets built by the uzechoise nobility; thus adding weight to the saying, " He who owns a house in Uzerche has a castle in the Limousin." In 1996 Uzerche was awarded, "village etape" status and, since 2010, has been listed among the towns of France to be worthy of a" plus beaux detour".Wikipedia
