Saint-Emilion : visitors’ guide

Façonnage : Broché | Auteur(s) : Antoine Lebègue (Ang)

Saint-Emilion is not just world-famous for its wines, it is also a town steeped in history. Its beauty has earned it a place on the Unesco World Heritage list.

This book will guide you through the narrow streets and past the historic monuments dotted around the town and into the underground world beneath, including the largest monolithic church in Europe. It will unveil some of the mysteries that make Saint-Emilion a place riddled with enigmas. Just what was the King’s Tower or the amazing Cardinal Palace, built astride the town walls? Who built the monolithic church? What does the dragon on a low relief in the church represent? What is the Jurade?

The book will also lead you into the vineyards to discover Saint-Emilion’s most famous wines.

With a brief history of the town and its vineyards, illustrated by numerous photographs, this book will be your guide during your visit and a souvenir of your time here.
