The Vieux Port de Saint-Raphaël is located in centre of down town, continuing the Commandant Guilbaud's promenade or the Cours Jean Bart.
In the morning, at dawn, the fishermen moor their boats and unload their fish, then go to the fish markets.
Shaded by centenary plane trees, you'll love to stroll along the quay and admire the splendid view over the port.
The Bonaparte Garden is located above the parking with the same name overlooking the Old Port: it dominates the Saint-Raphaël bay. The strollers can hear the noises of the fishing port below.
To reach this landscaped garden, you'll need to use a concrete footbridge: enter a universe where quiet and relaxation wait to embrace you.
Located in the heart of the old town, the Musée archéologique de Saint-Raphaël is located in the former presbytery of the Sant Rafeu church. In the museum's gardens, you can see the ramparts, the arrow slits and the tower of the former medieval castrum.
Since it opened in 1968, the archaeological museum has kept significant collections coming from underwater excavations carried out in the areas around Agay, Anthéor and Dramont.
The Santa Lucia de Saint-Raphaël Port is located a few metres from down town. It is an important harbour for pleasure boating on the French Riviera. From this harbour you can sail along the Mediterranean coasts but also towards Corsica and Italy. The Santa Lucia Port has wide quays where people can stroll and stop at neighbouring boutiques.
The Notre-Dame de la Victoire Basilica of Saint-Raphaël was built at the end of the nineteenth century by Pierre Aublé. The building was constructed in Roman-Byzantine style. The Roman style predominates on the outside of the building, while the inside uses the Byzantine decorative effects.
In 2004, the Var church received the honorary title of basilica from Pope Jean-Paul II for its manifested spiritual influence.
