ST EMILION THE ROOFTOPS

rooftops7

St Emilion is a very photogenic town and I took hundreds of pictures.  I’ll post a selection of them in themes and one of my favourite themes is rooftops.

I’m not going to give a history of the town or its famous wine.  There are plenty of websites that will do that, much better than I can.  Pictures are more my thing and it’s such a hilly town that there are plenty of places from where you can get a beautiful view of its rooftops.

Click on a picture if you would like to enlarge it and see more detail.  Can you spot our gite in one of them?  As a clue it makes a partial appearance in three of them.

  5. Great Pics. Only last Saturday night at a local eatery I ordered a bottle of St Emilion and very nice it was.
