The history

Hotel Belvédère du Rayon Vert – Cerbère, France

Designed in the art deco style by the Perpignan architect, Léon Baille, and built between 1928 and 1932, the Hotel Belvédère du Rayon Vert in the French Mediterranean stands out from its surroundings with its imposing and luxurious ship-like appearance. Closed during the Spanish Civil War, the hotel has never regained its former glory, according to the Telegraph.

The hotel, which featured a tennis court, ballrooms, theater and restaurant on its roof, was abandoned in 1983 and became a protected site under the list of historic monuments in 1987, according to the French Ministry of Culture.
