Discover cultural heritage


Visit Bourg, ancient village

Discover Bourg, or “Burgus” in Roman times, a medieval town classified as an “Ancient Village”, which dominates the Dordogne from its rocky peak. It is discovered on two levels: the upper town, the heart of the village, offers you a covered market hall, the “Museum of the citadel”, the Castle of the citadel (today a neoclassical residence) or even a Moorish villa. The lower town, for its part, gives pride of place to the port and nautical activities.
Over the centuries, the Bourquais, inhabitants of the village, worked to benefit from this strategic position envied by many crowned heads, to make their town a powerful center of prosperity.

Explore the Pair-non-Pair cave

Pair-non-Pair, one of the oldest decorated caves in the world. It presents wall engravings dating from the beginning of the Upper Paleolithic, beyond 30 years BC. Using the natural relief of the walls, they represent figures of horses, mammoths, cattle, ibexes and deer, including a megaceros, an animal very rarely depicted.

Go up to the Moulins de Montalon

On the hillsides of Montalon, in St André de Cubzac, the towers of ancient wind mill. Witnesses to the glorious past of milling in the region, they offer an atypical setting for the walking park set up next to Parc Robillard.

To discover it, we recommend the children’s rally “Sur les Pistes de Robin” (free from the Saint André de Cubzac Tourist Office) or La Boucle de Montalon

Visit the Moulin du Grand Puy

Take advantage of a guided tour of the mill to discover the different types of wood that make up the rotating roof as well as the method of producing “millstone” flour. Next door, you will find the miller's house where the old-fashioned work of the harvesters, how the mill works and where you can buy flour will be explained to you via videos.

Walk under the petticoats of the Eiffel Bridge

In Cubzac-les-Ponts, the Eiffel Bridge is one of the must-see attractions. Its construction, whose footbridge rests on the stone arcades, has, seen from above, the appearance of a Gothic cathedral.

Alongside it, picnic tables, a playground and the marina of Cubzac les Ponts offer you a bucolic stopover with a breathtaking view of the Dordogne.

Saint André de Cubzac Marina

The territory is bordered by the Dordogne offering small marinas for a stopover in the great outdoors.


Gironde estuary, Dordogne river and nature

The waters of the Dordogne and the Garonne flow side by side to the tip of Bec d'Ambès, 4 km north of Bourg, and finally mix to form the Gironde to form the largest estuary in Europe Western. The largest and most changing too because the elements (winds, currents, tides) continue to shape the landscape that surrounds it! Some islands are born while others are submerged, such as Crust Island, of which only the top of one of its trees remains.

Top 10 most beautiful sunsets

Along the Dordogne and the Gironde estuary, follow the small marinas at nightfall to enjoy the magnificent sunsets that nature offers us…

From Bourg, set off to discover the Corniche Road, narrow and picturesque! Unique in Gironde, it runs along the Dordogne and reveals the pleasant flowered gardens of the old fishermen's houses, the troglodyte dwellings nestled in the heart of the cliff or the famous carrelets, curious cabins perched above the waters. 

A thousand ways to discover the vineyard

On foot, by car, by bike (electric from the Bourg Tourist Office), the vineyard can be visited by pushing through the castle doors or during major events.

Meet the winegrowers

The country has a very ancient wine-growing vocation which dates back to the second century, a period when the Romans established the first plans there. The growth of the vine was very rapid given its geographical location on the maritime and river axis. Today, 3 Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) can be discovered as you stroll: Cotes de Bourg, Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur.

Visiting a wine estate means understanding how grapes are transformed from the vine into wine. It also means meeting winegrowers who are passionate about their profession. Whether at the Maison du vin des Côtes de Bourg, among winegrowers or during festive gourmet events, meet these passionate and exciting winegrowers!
