L’Ile d’Or, the private island in Saint-Raphael featured in the "Black Island" album of Herge, the famous cartoonist, creator of The Adventure of Tintin/ by Hergé. A must-see place for a two-wheeled adventurer.

We waited until the market closed at 5.30 pm to find a new use for this railing on the market square in Villefranche-sur-Mer.
