City Lesparre, sub-prefecture, is the administrative and commercial center of the Médoc for many centuries.

Lesparre Sparre then called, was once home to a large manor which bore the title of SYRIA.

Located between the beaches of the Atlantic and the Gironde estuary, it now offers many opportunities for tourism, socio-cultural, sporting, educational and concentration services.
