"Who Was the Man in the Iron Mask?" Île Sainte-Marguerite by lulujones

Île Sainte-Marguerite Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 41 photos

Not Leo

A quick 15 minute ferry ride from cannes will take you to the ile st. marguerite, one of the 2 lerins islands. (the other one is called ile st. honorat) there, you'll find yourself wandering around the fort/prison whilst contemplating the identity of the man in the iron mask and his ill-fated incarceration. Check out the pretty surrounding area filled with eucalyptus trees and other mediterranean vegetation. Also note: St. Marguerite is a pet friendly travel location!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:More than just a prison, it's a family destination! :-)
