Queyrac

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Gironde

Village of Gironde located between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, Queyrac takes place not far from Saint-Vivien-de-Médoc and Lesparre-Médoc. Full of charm and very dynamic, it allows to enjoy a wide variety of landscapes.

Of very ancient origin, the commune of Queyrac does not really appear in the registers of history until the 13th century. It sees its marshes drained by Flemish in the seventeenth century, allowing a sanitation of its surroundings. The village is best known for its wine business, with vineyards that have forged its landscapes.

Full of charm, the Girondine city also has an interesting architectural heritage that is mainly in the form of vineyards and other castles that are unfortunately not visited.

Things to see and do

Built between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the Saint-Hilaire church is the work of architect Edouard Bonnore. Close to the Romanesque style, it no longer has any trace of the original building.

Dating from the early 19th century, the Saint-Roch chapel is a stone building located in Lescapon.

While strolling in the vicinity of Queyrac, do not miss to admire the exteriors of the castles Bernon, Guidon, Carcanieux or Mouva.

The town also has several bike paths, hiking trails and a popular fishing pond, with a picnic area and games for the youngest.

Events and festivities

An organic market is proposed in mid-June.

The Saint-Roch festival is held each year in June with a concert in the church, a flea market, a carnival, a pedestrian race and fireworks.
