Oysters in Entre-deux-mers? You bet!
Famous for it’s liqueur-like wine, Sainte-croixdu-mont also has another interesting feature, which can be seen at the foot of the church and at Château de Tastes: fossilised oysters from 22 million years ago, back when the Atlantic Ocean covered this area! On top of that, there is also an exceptional panorama over the Gironde valley. The Entre-deux-mers Tourism Office (Office de Tourisme de l’entre-deux-mers) - +33(0)5 56 81 62 73 www.entredeuxmers.com
