Saint Emilion medieval village, Bordeaux stock photography samples, by Per Karlsson, BKWine.
The village of Saint Emilion is one of the most picturesque in the Bordeaux wine country. It’s on the “right bank” of the Dordogne river. The village is dominated by the tower Tour du Roy and by the church tower. The church is one of the main tourism sites in the town. It is a “monolithic” church, meaning that it is carved out of the underground rock. Only the tower is visible above ground.
In the middle of the village there is a charming town square with cafés and restaurants. The whole town is actually full of restaurants and cafés so there is plenty to choose from. There are also many wine shops where you can buy bottles from the Saint Emilion region or from other parts of the Bordeaux district. In a few places you can buy the typical ‘macarons de Saint Emilion’ small, succulent almond bisquits. Saint Emilion is on a steep slope and has many winding cobble stone streets that can be quite dangerous to negotiate when it is raining. From the upper part of the village, close to the tourist office, you have a beautiful view over the town and over the surrounding vineyards and landscape
