Village ancien de Plassac

Description

Plassac is an ancient village located 5 km south of Blaye and its citadel, and at the start of the Corniche road, a picturesque road which runs along the Gironde estuary. From the first century a Gallo-Roman villa was built which overlooked the river. Two other palaces followed one another until the XNUMXth century, the remains of which can still be seen. As you walk through the streets, you can admire the contemporary mosaic works created by Emilie Baudrais – an art craftsman located in the town – and the inhabitants: a boat in the port, a frame on the dike, a painting next to the museum and another next to tennis. The port of Plassac experienced very strong activity in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth century. The construction of beautiful stone residences bears witness to this. The virgin of Montuzet, perched at the top of the village, offers a remarkable view of the Gironde estuary.
