The medieval city by the night watchman's lantern light


> visit only in French

At twilight, meet our night watchman at the bell tower of the monolithic church and 
leave for a discovery of the medieval city of Saint-Émilion by the light of a lantern!

Between light and shadow you’ll be told the history of the village. Along the narrow 
streets to the famous underground church, the mysteries of the village will be revealed to you during this ideal summer night stroll.


  • The town (almost) without the crowds!
  • It includes the hermitage of the monk Emilion, the catacombs and the monolithic church: even more
  • dazzling by night.
  • Challenge the other visitors during the quiz and get a reward at the end of the tour! For the quiz, bring a pen!


Due to the steep, cobbled route, this tour is unfortunately not suitable for people with reduced mobility.
