“Agay is a paradise where even the dust is fragrant.” –
Agay, located in one of the most beautiful harbors on the coast between Cap Dramont and Pointe de la Baumette, is the natural gateway to the Estérel. It offers three fine sandy beaches and a terraced area with access to the sea via the rocks. Very sheltered, it was appreciated by navigators (Agay means “favorable” in Greek).
With the arrival of the railway in 1860, many artists stopped off at Agay: the painter Louis Valtat, the composer Vincent d'Indy, the writers Guy de Maupassant and Maurice Donnay stayed there as well as Saint-Exupéry (not to be missed the Fountain for the Little Prince, erected in his homage). Albert Cohen located part of the action of Belle du Seigneur there
Well sheltered between Cap Dramont and Pointe de la Baumette, the harbor of Agay is a natural gateway to the Estérel massif.
Its configuration also makes it a place very appreciated by navigators (Agay means “favorable” in Greek). You will appreciate its three fine sandy beaches, the summit of Rastel and its red rocks, dominating the harbor and offering a breathtaking panorama.
Agay also has a small port area with 166 berths, so a few are available for reception, as well as an organized mooring area.
CITY CENTER AND OLD TOWN
From the old “village district” where the Raphaëlois peasants lived, the narrow and shady streets that make up the old town still remain today.
Every day, this district hosts a flower and vegetable market where you will only find typical Provençal foodstuffs.
A little further on stands the Romanesque church, listed as a historic monument, which was enlarged in the 18th century, but built in the 12th century! Its presbytery now houses the Archaeological Museum of Saint-Raphaël. Its 22 m watchtower, dating from around the 14th century, offers a splendid panorama.
The "Quartier de la Marine", once frequented by the city's fishermen, has gradually turned into a seaside resort. A casino, as well as numerous villas, have been built there in order to create a truly attractive town centre.
Points of interest
Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Victoire: building built by Pierre Aublé between 1882 and 1889, representative of the Romano-Byzantine style very popular during the Belle Epoque.
Museum of Prehistory and Underwater Archaeology: it contains collections from local heritage, prehistory and Roman antiquity from underwater excavations.
Louis de Funès Museum: more than 350 documents are presented, personal photographs, filming and films, drawings in particular by Louis de Funès, letters such as those of Jean Anouilh, but also extracts from films, some of which are unknown. Digital tour of the Museum.
Promenade des Bains: this promenade was carried out between 1880 and 1882 under the name of "Terrasse des Bains". We can consider that it marks the beginning of the tourist era in Saint-Raphaël
