Hike in Saint-Macaire, a medieval town on the banks of the Garonne

Walking & more . Walks. Inheritance

Along the banks of the Garonne, this 2-hour walk (count 4 with multiple breaks…) will take you to the ancient city of Saint-Macaire, nestled on its rock. The Saint-Sauveur Church and its XNUMXth century murals, the old ramparts, the Saint-Sauveur priory, the gates or the medieval stronghold of Tardes: so many visits conducive to total immersion in the Middle Ages . We like to stroll with our nose to the sky in the picturesque alleys, to wander around small shops in nooks steeped in history, we fall back into childhood by climbing small steep stairs, and we marvel at the view offered by Place du Mercadiou, symbol of the power of ancient merchants. Lined with covered arcades, shimmering with blond stones, it dominates the Garonne and offers you a breathtaking panorama of the Entre-deux-Mers!
