In town is also a museum related to pottery, Thiviers was once reknowned for the Thiviers Red in faience pottery.

Saturday is market day and a great time to visit the town - find  other regional produce and feel the hustle and bustle of french life,  a great time to sit and have a coffee after wandering the stalls.

The square is dominated by the church which originates from the 12th century.
