Blaye

  • English
    • The Vauban citadel, a city within a city, built on the side of a cliff and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008, attracts many visitors. Access is free, as is the car park opposite it, at the bottom of the ramparts. You wander around according to your desires, walking through its narrow streets, stopping in small shops, or walking through its green spaces that children are happy to climb.

      Its underground passages leading to the port can also be visited, as is the history and archeology museum at its heart (paying visits). The citadel is part with Fort Pâté and Fort Médoc, located opposite Blaye, of the "Vauban lock", this defensive triptych unique in France. In July and August, a small tourist train, at the foot of the citadel, takes travelers on a guided tour of Blayais, its vineyards and the estuary, the longest in Europe, with its 70 kilometres, and which recalls memories of barges loaded with wood, stones, and wine. You can discover the citadel by horse-drawn carriage with the Château Marquis de Vauban, which offers a visit to its cellars and a tasting of its wines.
