Cintegabelle, France is a small town with a population of only about 2,000. It’s located in the region of Bordeaux and has an average elevation of almost 1 foot above sea level. The town was first mentioned as “Castellum Cencii Belae” back in 1036 AD and was originally owned by Duke William IV d’Aquitaine. There are also two other towns nearby: Saint-Martin-d’Armagnac and Castillonnès.
The town is known for its amazing views of peaks and valleys during the winter months. The walls are built to protect against avalanches by directing them around the town instead of into it allowing villagers to continue with daily activities without interruption. There are several hiking trails that lead up high mountain passes offering beautiful views of Cintegabelle below, which makes this place perfect for hikers looking for some serious exercise. This area has been inhabited since prehistoric times so there are many historical attractions nearby as well making it an ideal destination for history enthusiasts.
