Church of St RadegondeThe church of St Radegonde was built in 1094. The structure appears quite 'squat' and is Romanesque in character. The church was a resting place for the Pilgrimage of Saint James of Compostela on the via Turonensis, because the pilgrims crossed the Gironde at this spot.

This village is said to be one of the prettiest in France

Instead of driving down to Bordeaux, then crossing the Gironde, and driving up the other side, drive to Royan, just 25 minutes away, and take the ferry across to the Medoc. You will save at least 90 minutes! The saving on fuel will help to offset the ferry cost.
