About the place:
Situated in the Poitou-Charentes region of France, Montmorillon is a commune and city that has been inhabited since ancient times. The town’s name comes from its founder, an archbishop named Hugh de Morville. In the Middle Ages, Montmorillon was a major stopping point for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Later, it became famous as one of the centers for salt production during this time period. Located near Bordeaux, today Montmorillon is known mostly for tourism and wine making.
The city has been an important settlement since as early as 400 BC and still holds on to its French charm today. Montmorillonâ€™s history can be traced back through Celtic tribes who settled there for farming purposes â€“ proof of which have been found in archaeological excavations made by archaeologists from Franceâ€™s National Museum of Archaeology. The village center dates from medieval times, with its town square and churchyard surrounded by 17th century houses. A few kilometers away are located a large number of prehistoric sites known for their collection of bones dating back over 550 million years ago during which time this area was covered by warm seas rich with salt water fauna similar to that now found on tropical shores.
