Emilion Hermitage : Michelin's recommendations
This cave above the Chapel of the Trinity was extended by Emilion, giving it the shape of a Greek cross. The saint's stone bed, his chair carved out of the rock and the spring where he baptised people can still be seen. At the far end is an altar, surmounted by a statue of the saint. Legend has it that women wishing to bear a child should sit upon it.
