Head for the Blaye Tourist Of­fice www.tourisme-blaye.com and fol­low the guide! The Citadel of Blaye, for­ti­fied by Vauban, is listed as a UNESCO World Her­itage site un­der “Ver­rou Vauban” (along with Fort Pâté on the epony­mous es­tu­ar­ine is­land and Fort Mé­doc on the left bank of the Es­tu­ary). In ad­di­tion to its un­der­ground tun­nels, you will be charmed by its de­light­ful nar­row streets and the sweep­ing views over the largest es­tu­ary in West­ern Eu­rope (625 km²). Blaye is the per­fect place to head out on the the Gironde Es­tu­ary. The river cruise tour “As­sault on the ver­rou Vauban” is the best way to ex­plore the chain of fortresses con­structed by Vauban. The trip in­cludes a guided tour of the old Citadel of Blaye, a guided tour of Fort Mé­doc and a trip around Fort Paté. Many other river tours leave from Blaye as well: tours and cruises that take you to the îles Nou­velle, Pati­ras or Mar­gaux for ex­plor­ing, pic­nics or meals. www.tourisme-blaye.com
