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 centuries by monks faithful to the memory of St-Émilion, an 8th-century hermit and miracle worker. Its spiretop clocher (bell tower) rises out of the bedrock, dominating the center of town. The church may only be visited on a guided tour reserved online. The visit includes the catacombs and the underground cell of St-Émilion.
