One of the two outlying islands of Cannes, the big one is St. Margaret, the small one is St. Hornaray. The island is covered with pine trees, and there is a fortress that once held the Iron Man prison. The island is small and scenic. Ferry ferry 15 minutes from Vieux Port, Old Port near the Film Festival Palace, and no entry fee to the island.
Saint Margaret Island is one of the scenic spots in Cannes, a famous tourist city in France. There are two islands off the coast of Cannes, the largest island is Saint Margaret. These two outlying islands were once the religious centers of southern Provence. Saint-Honari was named after a Roman monk who arrived here at the end of the 4th century and established a monastery. St. Margaret is his sister, and Margaret also built a monastery on the island.
The height of Margaret Island in France is also a very natural place. You can also see many ancient castle buildings on this island. The bird resources are also abundant. I like the recreational projects here.
Saint Margaret Island is the largest island in the Lylins Islands, about half a mile from the small town of Cannes on the French Riviera. Saint Margaret Island can be reached by ferry from Cannes, with views of the beach, the ancient fortress and the Riviera. The island of Saint Honora is the second largest island in the Lérance Islands, about one mile from Cannes. Since the fifth century, this small island has been the residence of the monastic community. There is a monastery on the island with 30 Cistercian monks. The monastery is a popular tourist attraction. Interesting sights include many abandoned churches erected by monks on the island in different places in history. Lerin Monastery and the 15th-century fortress monastery are open to visitors, and the monastery shop sells various monastery goods, including wine and honey produced on the island. Although this modern monastery is used as a retreat for Christians, it is not open to tourists.
The island of Saint Margaret, a 15-minute flight from Cannes, was once imprisoned here. During the peak season, the ferry to the island runs every half an hour, but I went there during the off-season in early March, and the ferry only runs every 2 hours. There will be one flight at around 12 o'clock and 14:00. The island is even more desolate in the off-season. The original castle on the island looks like an abandoned dead city. The weeds are everywhere, and the wooden windows are crackling under the strong wind. Had it not been for dozens of tourists who had landed on the same boat, I would almost have thought that I was on the wrong island, or that the prison on the island had been closed because no one was interested. The man in the iron mask was confined in one of the small chambers of the museum on the island, and then transferred to the Bastille until his death.
