Libourne, France Cruise Port

If you're enthusiastic about French wines, then cruising to the port of Libourne, France is an oenophile's delight. Libourne (or Gascon Liborna) is in the southwestern part of the country where the mouths of the Isle and Dordogne rivers merge; it's also northeast of Bordeaux, another great name in wines. Not far from Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, two other wine-making areas, this charming city was founded around 1270 by English landowner Roger de Leybourne. Once you arrive at the quay you'll see the 14th-century clock-tower which made up the city's defenses. If you enjoy fresh food along with your wine, the Place Abel Surchamp has one of the largest local food markets in the region. With hundreds of shops and beauty to spare, the city’s 24,000 residents will help you make this a trip to remember. Here are some of our favorite experiences for the cruise port of Libourne, France:
 
  • One of the most popular attractions in Libourne is the neo-Gothic St. John's Church, originally built in the 14th century and rebuilt in the 19th century (except for the choir). The stone spire is visible throughout town making the church easy to spot.
     
  • Of course, traveling to wine country should include a visit to a winery. The centuries-old Chateau de Sales has a gorgeous setting – both the grounds and the chateau itself – the guides are knowledgeable, and the tasting is generous.
     
  • Art lovers will adore the Musée des Beaux-Arts et d'Archéologie de Libourne (Libourne Fine Arts Museum). Featuring works from the 14th through 20th centuries, its two exhibition areas are separated into permanent and temporary collections.
     
  • Libourne Beach on the shores of the lovely Lake Dagueys is one of the city's main recreation areas. Whether you want to sit on the sand, relax on the nearby lawn, or enjoy a picnic, there's also a fitness trail and small animal farm to please travelers of all ages.
