The picture postcard scenery of South-West France has mesmerised tourists and locals for years. As well as the centre of Bordeaux, which is classified as a UNESCO heritage site, Bordeaux's region also spoils you for choice with the imposing medieval buildings, fortresses and castles scattered all around. .
These constructions, which seem to belong to a distant time, often stand proud on the edge of cliffs or take refuge in between rock formations, as if in hiding. Wherever they are found, each place has its own stories to tell and legends to share, waiting to be discovered.
