Rue Obscure, Villefranche-sur-Mer
Villefranche-sur-Mer is known for its unusual Rue Obscure (Dark Street), a pedestrian street that runs for several blocks under buildings in the lower part of town, near the harbor. It's not hard to understand why the town's residents have sheltered from wars and natural disasters in the Rue Obscure for centuries.
