An expanding city with more than 5,300 inhabitants, Boé has many shops, workshops, as well as an important agriculture and industrial economy.

Boé used to be a mariners and boatmen village, who used to sail up the river taking goods to Bordeaux.

You can also discover the only vestige of this activity that is the tower of Lacassagne dating from the 14th century located on the banks of the Garonne River.

Two churches remained, one in Boé called the Saint Sulpice church and one in St Pierre de Gaubert. In the latter one can admire a painting listed as a historical monument called 'La Résurrection de Tabitha' by painter Alexandre Laemelein dating from 1843.
