Photographer's Note

St. Emilion is a famous winemaking centre in Southern France. The small medieval city amidst vineyards was founded around the hermitage of St. Emile. Next to his cell is located the biggest in Europe underground cave church. Here it can be seen the spire that is erected above this rock carved underground chapel. This spire occurred to be too heavy for the underground dome columns and roof construction. So columns inside are additionally fortified. This perspective was taken from the top of the watchtower of the town.
