Tips from locals
Just 50 minutes away is the World Heritage site of Blaye with its amazing citadel overlooking the Gironde estuary, great shops and vineyards.
Ancient castle ramparts worth seeing. Ferry across to the Medoc is a delightful trip.
Most visits to Blaye start with a visit to the citadel. The Citadel is a military complex designed by Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban and was constructed between 1685 and 1689.
