Fodor's Review

One of Europe's largest underground churches, the Église Monolithe was hewn out of the rock face between the 9th and 12th century by monks faithful to the memory of St-Émilion, an eighth-century hermit and miracle worker. Its spire-top clocher (bell tower) rises out of the bedrock, dominating the center of town.
