  • The Tower of Saint Emilion is a bit of a hike, but one that's worth embarking on. The view from the top over the limestone houses and vineyards is a spectacular sight and while not necessarily easy...

  • Excellent viewpoint. It’s definitely a noticeable landmark in this beautiful town. I didn’t go up the tower but took pictures around. If you’d only like to overlook Saint-Émilion, you could simply walk around the tower or went a bit up to the viewpoint, where you can find on Google Map. The town and the view were excellent. Bring your own bike or rent one to enjoy the countryside view. But be aware of the cars, they were at high speed most of the time and there were no bike lanes. I almost got run over once.
  • The tower wasnt opened when I went so I can only describe anecdotally. Looking up from the fountains, I felt like I was a Flea Bottom resident going about my business as the visage of the Red (beige) Keep loomed over me, certainly an immersive experience. Climbing up, easy despite the smooth stones and steep incline, the expansive views was reminiscent of Highgarden
