Saint-Émilion is a small wine town located 35 km (22 mi) northeast of Bordeaux, between Libourne and Castillon-la-Bataille in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of Southwestern France. It is a medieval town in the Gironde department and stands magnificently on top of the hill overlooking the Dordogne valley. The town is an incredible open-air museum with a medieval atmosphere and has many bars, restaurants and wine shops to explore. The most surprising remains are probably its underground monuments: a unique monilithic church, and more than 70 hectares of underground excavations.
