Le Puy Notre Dame is formally classified as one of France’s “Villages de Charme” and a “Cité de Caractère”. The village has been a center of viticulture for over a thousand years. Over 90 kilometers of caves and tunnels exist under the village, many of which are still used today for wine storage. Portions of the old wall that formerly surrounded the village still remain. The church was on the medieval Road to Santiago de Compostela, and a destination by pilgrims for a relic of the Virgin Mary, which still resides in the church.  Pilgrims are said to have staid in the property.
