The town of Libourne hosted its first local wine festival on the second weekend in July. The Des Vines, Des Rive en Libournais combines the two important aspects of the town, the local wine industry and the confluence of the l'Ilse and Dordogne rivers. In addition to several of the local wineries displaying the fruit of their labor, there were activities such as water sports, barrel rolling and vendors selling goods and foods. Sponsored by Libourne and nearby towns of Pomeral, Lalande de Pomeral, Les Billaux, Moulon and Genissac.
By the main bridge into town is a small park featuring a monument to Captain Oscar de Gereaux. The monument honors his sacrifice in 1845 in the battle of Sidi Brahim.
Just a few streets from the l"isle River, and just off the main street is the imposing Church of Saint-Jean, complete with towering bell tower.
As with many towns in Europe, Libourne has an attractive and active town square. A number of cafe's, pattiseries, shops line the square. The large pergola in the middle serves as a focal point.
More than just a farmers market, the Sunday market in the Lebourne city square is a packed assemblage of fresh fruits and vegetables, but cheese, meats, seafood and great deals on clothing.
Located on the banks of the river, the Tower is one of the few remaining vestiges of the medieval fortifications that once surrounded the city. Unfortunately, the access to the interior was locked.
