St Emilion

Best known for its wines and architecture, St Emilion has much more to offer. This shot shows the remains of the old monastery, which stands outside the town walls, hidden behind some poppies that thrive in the calciferous soil. We have visited St Emilion many times taking in the monolithic church and the bell tower above, the cloisters, the pottery museum and the Romanesque architecture and these days we sometimes take the dog round the carefully tended vinyards that surround the town, giving us the opportunity to enjoy the mellow buildings from a different standpoint.
