  • English
    • Surrounded by ramparts, Saint-Macaire is a remarkable medieval architectural ensemble, with many listed monuments, such as the arcaded square of Mercadiou and its houses dating from the 13th to 16th centuries. In the 18th century, underground galleries were dug to extract the stone transported to Bordeaux for the construction of buildings.

      The church of Saint-Sauveur, on the edge of the ramparts, was part of a former Benedictine priory. The Porte de Benauge, or Clock Gate, dating from the 14th century, marks the entrance to the city.
