  • When you're in Saint-Emilion, this church is a must see! Easy to get to, all on one level. Not a grand church but very beautiful with hints of it's long history on the walls. Don't miss it!  more »
  • A beautiful church with cloisters. While everyone talks about the Monolithic Church, this is far more interesting and beautiful.  more »

  • Our tour of the underground church was amazing! We had an English guide, Tess, who was excellent and told stories that really made the history come alive. The underground church is really big, and Saint Emilion is very beautiful.
  • Our guide Frank told us that the structure was 400 BC. We were also told that there were mummies but they were destroyed during revolution. It is an amazing structure, full of history. But I wish the village administration provide a knowledgeable guide. We saw the ruins of one house made of wood only belonging to a noble. It is history everywhere. If you are at Bordeaux you cannot afford to miss it. A must see.
  • Really interesting. Unfortunately only accessible with a guide. One has to go and register and hopefully there will be enough interest to call a guide.
  • If you have the time whilst in St Emilion, step away from the world of wine and learn about the ancient history of St Emilion. Brilliant tour.
  • The visit not to miss in Saint Emilion. Awesome monolith church. Funny story about the to-be-pregnant seat.
