In the 1st century AD, a Gallo-Roman villa was built overlooking the river. As you stroll through the small streets, you can admire artwork in the form of contemporary mosaics created by local artist Emilie Baudrais and by le locals inhabitants: a boat at the port, a frame on the sea wall, a picture next to the museum and another beside the tennis court.
The port of plassac was extremely busy by the 18th and 19th centuries. The beautiful homes built of cut stone bear witness to that activity. The virgin of Montuzet, perched on the heights above the village, offers an amazing view of the Gironde Estuary.
