Jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion
Viticulture was introduced to this fertile region of Aquitaine by the Romans, and intensified in the Middle Ages. The Saint-Emilion area benefited from its location on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela and many churches, monasteries and hospices were built there from the 11th century onwards. It was granted the special status of a 'jurisdiction' during the period of English rule in the 12th century. It is an exceptional landscape devoted entirely to wine-growing, with many fine historic monuments in its towns and villages.
Having been to many European villages, castles, my expectation of SAt. Emilion wasn't particularly high but it is such a beautiful elegant little city, which is obviously lovingly cared for, from the gorgeous tourist office to the immaculantly kept vineyards which surround it. Wine is the main theme here, being the home of some of the worlds greatest ( and most expensive wines) but it is charming and interesting for those in search of history as well.
