The surprising medieval village of Saint Emilion, erected on a hill is considered a real open air museum. Inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999 for its cultural scenery, Saint Emilion has become an unmissable spot.
Its troglodytic tradition is its most stunning aspect: a monolith church unique in the world and more than 70 ha of underground tunnels carved in the solid limestone.
All around the Saint Emilion city lies the vineyards, with which it blends perfectly. The depth and relief of the city seems to have carved by them.
Discover the medieval city and its vineyards, at any season. A mere stroll in the city will enchant you and along the paved alleyways, the rows of vines, or in a glass of our precious nectar, you will enjoy the splendour of Saint Emilion.
The Saint Emilion Tourism office is at your disposal everyday, and all year round, to help you better understand this outstanding heritage.
