Little known to the general public, the Hermitage of Saint- Emilion, located under the Trinity Chapel near the Monolithic Church, is a magical place.
In this cave that forms a natural shelter and with a source of fresh water, lies the chair or meditation seat of Saint-Emilion, where the monk of the same name was in the habit of praying.
Over the years and stories, this seat has been saddled with the name " Fertility Seat". Indeed, legend has it that a woman wishing to have a child only has to sit on this chair and pray Saint-Emilion to get pregnant whithin the year.
