Dear visitors: welcome to Emilion la Montagne! Mr or Mrs Bouquey will tell you about his/her life, city and struggles during the French Revolution of 1789 through an entertaining visit of Saint-Émilion.


Our local revolutionary will take you from the city streets and squares to the monolithic church, a hideout during those troubled times of French history.


In the light of the lanterns, enjoy the anecdotes of your costumed guide and above all watch out: spies are everywhere!




  • Warning! Vibrant fun tour!
  • French History is staged by Marinette and Robert, our local revolutionaries.
  • At the end of the tour, seize the opportunity to buy the Collegiate Church.
  • The visit includes the hermitage of the monk Emilion, the catacombs and the monolithic church.


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