Ville historique de Castillon-la-Bataille

Useful information

Province : Libournais and Saint Émilion

  • English
    • About fifteen kilometers from Saint-Emilion, Castillon la Bataille is bathed by the Dordogne river. The city is known for its famous battle which opposed the French to the English and ended the 100 years war, on July 20, 1453. Bordeaux fell into French hands in October of the same year, then Aquitaine became French again. A sound and light show brings this important episode in the history of France to life every summer.

      It was only in 1953, for the 500th anniversary of Castillon's victory, that the town took on its current name. The town has a rich architectural and natural heritage. A few kilometers away, the old fortified town of Gensac, overlooking the valley of the Durèze and the Dordogne, classified as an old village, does not lack character. In August its festival offers beautiful concerts of classical music.
