  Port Map

Blaye is a Gironde River cruise port located in Aquitaine, southwestern France. The town is on the estuary of river Gironde, and is the site of an imposing citadelle built by Marquis de Vauban (1633-1707, a French military engineer). The citadel (town's fortified area) overhangs the estuary and allows for magnificent panoramic views over the river.Blaye (France) river cruise port

Inside are the ruins of an ancient Gothic chateau containing the tomb of Charibert II, son of Clotaire II and king of Aquitaine. Blaye is also defended by Fort Pate on an island in Gironde and Fort Medoc on river's left bank, both from 17th century. From here passengers can also visit the Bourg village, built on a rocky outcrop and enclosed by medieval ramparts. Next photo shows the fortifications of Blaye Citadelle.Blaye Citadelle (Vauban)

Blavia (Blaye) was a port of the Santones in ancient times. Tradition states that Frankish hero Roland was buried in Blavia's basilica, which was on the site of the today citadel. It was an important stronghold that played an important part during the wars against the English (who burned it in 1352) and the French Wars of Religion (1593).
