Sub-prefecture of the Gironde, between the beaches of the Atlantic and the estuary of the Gironde, Lesparre-Médoc takes place about sixty kilometers from Bordeaux, in Bas-Médoc. It is located twenty kilometers from Pauillac, not far from Naujac-sur-Mer, Saint-Yzans-sur-Medoc or Queyrac.
Populated since the Neolithic, the territory developed in the Gallo-Roman era with the creation of the port of Metilium, ancestor of Lesparre-Médoc. Also called Sparra, the city was for a long time the seat of an important seigniory, becoming during the reign of the Plantagenets a political, military and commercial center.
Always very dynamic, the city offers its visitors an important cultural and festive program, as well as an interesting architectural heritage to discover the history of Lesparre-Médoc. Lovers of gastronomy will also appreciate the culinary specialties available on site, such as lamb from Pauillac, seafood products, Medocaine noisettines and the Médoc attic.
