This tower was built as the Ile Ronde Rear Range Light, but the range has been discontinued for many years and the front tower no longer remains. The surviving tower is often the target of vandals and clearly needs some care. It is on the grounds of the La Ronde amusement park managed by Six Flags. (Thanks to Michel Forand.)
