2.4/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The old jail was part of our local bus tour. It was a fantastic location to visit, walking amongst the crumbling walls. Another fantastic location for keen photographers. 
  • Too bad that this kind of place is not maintained and thus allow for this account better for what it was...

  • For lovers of the ruins. We guess the cells and the imagination does the rest. This lack of explanation. A site delivered to him even that deserves to be maintained and explained
