Northwest of Libourne lies the utterly captivating town of Blaye. Famous throughout Bordeaux for its ancient citadel, Blaye’s historic center, city walls, and forts were classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2008. It was a very worthy accolade.

Today, visitors primarily come to experience the delicious wines of Cotes de Blaye, and to marvel at the ruins of Blaye’s medieval castle, Chateau des Rudel, and the remains of the Basilica St-Romain, which is the resting place of Charibert II, King of Aquitaine. Blaye was an important stronghold during the Hundred Years’ War, and indeed during the Wars of Religion between the Catholics and Huguenots. It offers an enticing blend of fascinating history, beautiful architecture and world-class wines and gastronomy.
