Saint-Émilion is a commune in southwestern France, located in the Gironde department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
In the heart of the Libournais country, the medieval city of Saint-Emilion is located in a region of wine hills. Ideal location to produce good wine and present its land to visitors from all over the world! Saint-Émilion is therefore a renowned vineyard, but not only! This city is also a magnificent center of pilgrimage, a monastic city and a densely populated economic power. All that, only a few people know. The city's tourist office therefore offers a guided walk to learn all about the secrets of Saint-Emilion.
During your visit to Gironde, we recommend that you visit the Monolith Church of Saint-Emilion which is an old 11th century church entirely dug into the rock. This church is the largest underground medieval church in Europe.
If after a long visit, you want to picnic in a park, go to the Parc de l'Épinette where you can enjoy your meal in front of the wandering geese.
