There is more to Saint_Émilion than wonderful wine. This charming village near Bordeaux is amazingly scenic. It's also UNESCO World Heritage site, and has a unique underground church. Well, at least, most of the church is underground. And, of course, the wine is indeed lovely!
Saint-Émilion in the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region
Saint-Émilion is in the region of the southwest of France in the Province of Nouvelle Aquitaine that includes Bordeaux and the Basque country. It is famous for being a part of the wine-producing area of the greater Bordeaux and is also famous for its underground church and its architecture.
The Village of Saint-Émilion Itself Is Interesting
It is also a small town, of great historic interest, situated in the heart of the wine-producing area labelled AOC St Emilion, one of the great Bordeaux wine areas. St Emilion is about 40 km or 26 miles from Bordeaux and only a few km from Libourne which makes it an easy place to visit or stop when in the Bordeaux area.
