Saint-Emilion, with is military and religious past, is like an architectural jewel mounted in a clasp of vines which produce world-reputed wines.

The Auberge de la Commanderie is one of the historic sites located at the heart of the medieval town. The main part of the building was of templar origin and the annex was used as a last hiding place by the counter-revolutionary Girondin deputies. Both building are a unique of old Saint-Emilion and were renovated in 2003.
