Saint-émilion

UNDERGROUND SAINT-EMILION

The largest monolithic church in Europe

 

The true treasure of the region lies beneath the ground, so don’t miss this immersion into the heart of the limestone rock. It offers an exclusive discovery of the lesser known side of the town, an utterly extraordinary place.

 

From the story of monk Émilion to the carving of the surprising monolithic church, the guide will lead you through 4 monuments: Émilion’s hermitage, the Trinity Chapel, remarkable for its medieval paintings, the catacombs and the underground church.
