I really enjoyed wondering around the citadel at Blaye and enjoyed all the historic buildings associated with the military garrison. The views from th citadel across the river a really lovely too. Nice for a sunset visit and then again in the early morning.
My wife and I took a walk through the Fortress with a guided tour the lady on the tour really knew her stuff it's quite a walk up the Cobblestone steps into the fort and then there is a city behind the fort small City. Well worth it to take the tour

We are on holiday in blaye for a week we where last here 10 years ago, it gets even better lots to see and do!
