May 2015

With our friends we drove from Bordeaux to  Saint-Émilion. A beautiful medieval village in the heart of one of Bordeaux’s most  famous vineyard regions. Saint-Émilion’s history goes back to prehistoric  times and is an UNESCO  World Heritage Site  with fascinating Romanesque  churches and ruins  stretching all along steep and narrow streets. Just wandering in the village was interesting.

It was nice to visit  as  the village was not  crowded with tourists.

Up we went again to admire the view. 118 steps of the Kings’s Tower built during the XIII century .
