History of the Corniche d´or:

This route offers one of the most beautiful landscapes of the French Riviera. First a rural road towards Théoule, it becomes a road at the initiative of the Mayor of Mandelieu, Ludovic Guize, who in May 1899 proposed the opening of the Chemin called "New Corniche de St Raphaël in Cannes". But its construction did not really start until the Touring Club de France offered a competition on November 19, 1900.

The Touring-Club, founded in 1890, worked to develop tourism, first by bicycle and then by automobile, by means of grant offers. United behind their dynamic President, Abel Ballif (1845-1934), its leaders put pressure on the public authorities for this achievement.

Moreover, a monument is erected at Trayas in honor of Abel Ballif. Mr. Guize, mayor, will propose that the new road, completed on June 2, 1901, be called boulevard du Touring Club de France in Mandelieu.

Now the Corniche d´Or, this grandiose work follows the meanders of the coast in tight bends, the red porphyries standing out magnificently against the blue of the Mediterranean and offering at every moment an unforgettable panorama. It was solemnly inaugurated on April 11, 1903 by a convoy of nearly 200 automobiles followed by a flood of cyclists.

Bearing the name of the Nationale 7 for a period, for reasons of state subsidies it will be classified RN98 in 1935, and RD6098 in 2006. It happens to be one of the most beautiful roads in Europe along the Mediterranean.
