Rue Obscure Review

Running parallel to the waterfront, the extraordinary 14th-century Rue Obscure (literally, "Dark Street") is entirely covered by vaulted arcades; it sheltered the people of Villefranche when the Germans fired their parting shots—an artillery bombardment—near the end of World War II.

    Rue Obscure Review

    Villefranche is one of our favorite towns. It's so picturesque and the Rue Obscure is just a part of it.

    We have spent hours photographing all of the wonderful, hilly streets.
