Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Gironde

Saint-Christoly-Médoc is a small wine-growing town of about 300 inhabitants located on the river, the only port of the estuary in the village.

The port of Saint-Christoly worth visiting for its beautiful views of the Gironde and old docks boats.

The old name of the village is Saint-Christoly-de-Castillon. During the English occupation of Aquitaine and the Hundred Years War, the medieval fortress of Castillon plays an important role. Located on a promontory overlooking the curve of the estuary, the castle is monitoring the estuary. In the twelfth century, the fortress was destroyed by order of Louis XIII. The remains of the castle are now the purpose of a promenade.
