Visit the sensational town of Saint-Emilion Bordeaux

If you are planning on a vacation to France, or even if you’re visiting the country for other purposes, some places stick out in the mind for your visit than others, simply due to their enhanced beauty. Such a place is a quaint, small town, where great things happen every day. Learn more about Saint milion Bordeaux and why it should be on your list of places to visit.

Key Takeaways:

  • In 1999, Saint Émilion became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, honored for its cultural landscape and historical vineyards. This medieval, fairytale town is a maze of curlicue ballast stone streets, strewn with charming storefronts, quaint squares, and flower-laden terraces.
  • In this honey-colored wine village, just east of Bordeaux, perhaps the most extraordinary site is the Saint Émilion Monolithic Church, dating from the 12th century. Where 1300 years ago, a Breton monk, Émilion, came to the ancient town then named Ascumbas.
  • Every historical town and village seems to have a specialty treat, along with luscious wines, and St. Émilion is no different. Here you’ll find the delicious historical almond macaron, and certainly not to be confused with the North America version of the coconut haystack macaroon.

“Photogenic Saint Émilion is more than famed wines – it will steal your heart.”
