St Emilion – A Jewel in Bordeaux

Set in the middle of the Bordeaux wine region of France, St. Emilion is a UNESCO World Heritage site full of ruins that extend along the slim and towering streets.St Emilion Bordeaux Region France

Named after a monk, Emilion, who settled in a hideaway carved into a rock here during the 8th century.  It was these monks who started wine production in this fabled area.St Emilion Bordeaux France

Yes, St Emilion is full of tourists but this beautiful village is well worth a visit!
