Tourism in Blaye
On the banks of the Gironde, the ***Hotel Restaurant La Citadelle is ideally located for discovering the Bordeaux region
Staying at the Citadel, is to experience a timeless stopover. Located in the heart of a single construction, the imposing and majestic citadel of Blaye, our hotel is animated entirely by the history of the city and that of its famous characters. The Blaye Citadel is one of three defensive fortifications of the triptych, the "Lock the estuary" that Louis XVI had intended to protect Bordeaux from enemy attack. Unique in France, this work of the famous Sebastian Vauban is a listed monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Vauban network.
A wine region extends around the town, the Blaye, Côtes de Bordeaux, which produce a fragrant wine that can be discovered in the cellars and the surrounding chateaux.
From the unmissable Vauban Citadel to the prehistoric cave of Pair-Non-Pair, Blaye and its surroundings are full of architectural treasures.
Walking through the Romanesque churches of the surrounding villages or in the heart of the remains of the Gallo-Roman villae Plassac, you will discover testimonies of history. From the artistic awakening of the First Men to the military genius of Vauban here are the unmissable visits in Blaye, which represent so many good reasons to come and visit us.
