Thanks to this book, two people passionate about Saint-Emilion take us by the hand and show us the well-known factes of this unique village, whose Cultural landscape was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Let us rest assured : Saint-Emilion received this honour not only because of its superb architectural heritage, but also, as specified in its designation, for its living traditional culture. Each double page reveals yet another aspect of incredibly rich and surprising life found in this wine producing Jurisdiction.
From the first traces of inhabitants dating back to the upper Paleolithic period until the present day, nothing (or almost nothing !) has escaped their scrutiny : the Pierrefitte Menhir, monasteries, churches, and other buildings, as well as gabares, lampreys, private and public collections, gastronomy, emblematic estates, colourful caracters, famous people, artits, vine tulips, the seasons, etc.
This eclectic inventory of the most beautiful wine village in the world provides a great deal of pleasure.
