Blaye

4.4
Blaye is a commune and subprefecture in the Gironde department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France.PopulationIts inhabitants are called Blayais or the Blayaises.GeographyBlaye is located on the right bank of the Gironde estuary (which is some 3km wide at this point), close to the A10 autoroute, 56km north of Bordeaux. There is a rail line with occasional freight trains, but no passenger services. A small ferry crosses the Gironde to Lamarque, in Medoc.HistoryIn ancient times Blaye was a port of the Santones. Tradition states that the Frankish hero Roland was buried in its basilica, which was on the site of the citadel. It was early an important stronghold which played an important part in the wars against the English and the French Wars of Religion . The duchess of Berry was imprisoned in its fortress in 1832-1833.The town was formerly named Blaye-et-Sainte-Luce and was renamed Blaye in June 1961.
