You'll visit the citadel of Blaye whose history goes back to ancient times, and remains today a fine example of military architecture. The medieval city of St. Emilion has preserved many of its relics of the past, despite the damage it has received over the centuries through several invasions, including religious wars and the French Revolution. In St Emilion, you can visit Cordeliers Convent and local fortifications. St Emilion has been listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List since December 1999.
You'll see Rauzan Castle built in the thirteenth century by the knight Sir Bernard de Rauzan. The castle was an important landmark for the English during the Hundred Years War. You will also visit Cadillac that belonged to the British during the Hundred Years War. Today, Cadillac is a small dynamic city. You can still see the old walls that once protected the city. This is also the castle that belonged to the Duke of Eperon. Both the castle and the church are worth a visit.
