Between the castles, mills and religious buildings, the town boasts a number of remarkablesites, including the town hall and its facade, typical of 19th-century architecture. The church of Saint-Siméon is an architectural gem dating back to the 12th century.

Other must-see sites include the Château de Grand Dragon, the Château de Pian and the remains of an old watermill at LePian.

Cambes has a long history, dating back to the Bronze Age, as evidenced by the discovery of a sword,now on display at the Musée d'Aquitaine in Bordeaux.

There is a secret place in the village, but it is no longer visible to the public. At the time, thesailors were very devoted to Sainte-Catherine and dedicated a small chapel to her. The Hermitage of Cambes, founded in the 16th century, is located in a 10m-deep cave andcontains two stone altars as well as the statue of Sainte-Catherine and magnificent wall frescoes.
