The Cretaceous wall along the right bank of the Gironde, in the amount of Meschers, is pierced with caves carved by the sea and then carved by man. These caves were also witnessed many events:

Inhabited since prehistoric times, they saw pass the Saracens, the terrifying Vikings, robbers, wreckers and pirates; then came the Protestants hide there to practice their religion ... They were from another witness to the tragic love story between Charlotte and Trémoille Permilhac page of Belcastel.
Inhabited by poor people, fishermen and widows, they have become in a few years most exclusive tourist center of the bourgeoisie of the 20s, we had to walk around and taste of the caviar.

A reconstitution of the cave dwellings and a unique perspective caves are a real tourist and cultural interest.
