Bourg
Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the confluence of the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, the small town of Bourg (also known as Bourg-sur-Gironde) was built in Roman times, invaded by the Visigoths, ravaged by the Normans, fortified by the English, and visited by royalty such as Louis XIV. His time in town even gave birth to the famous Bourg specialty — the King’s Fig —made of marzipan, figs, cream, chocolate, and fig liqueur.

Surrounded by medieval walls in the Aquitaine region, Bourg has been officially recognized as an historic village that’s known for its beauty. In the upper town you can visit the covered market, the Hôtel de la Jurade, and the old castle. You can also wander its tumbledown alleyways which lead to the port via ‘the King’s stairway’. Bourg is also known for the many orchards and AOC vineyards that surround the town.
