Landmark
View a piece of history in ruins at Vestiges du Bagne, an old prison that housed French convicts from 1864 to 1924. Since its closure, vegetation has overtaken the former jail, but you can still hike through the tall grass to explore this abandoned slice of history. Take a tour guide with you if you wish to see the tiny prison cells and hear the little-known facts about the place. Wear sturdy shoes and lots of bug repellant. Use our Ile Des Pins trip builder to add Vestiges du Bagne and other attractions to your Ile Des Pins vacation plans.
