According to our Back Roads France book, the most picturesque sight on the Gironde estuary is this 12th century Romanesque church built by Benedictine monks on a cliff. The village was added in 1284 by Edward I of England who reigned over this part of France.
The compact village is laid out in a grid pattern and surrounded by walls. This is probably the widest lane in town and all were lined with flowers, mostly hollyhocks. There are parking lots outside of town as cars aren’t allowed in the village.
