Fast Facts

British Baron Henry Brougham transformed this jewel on the French Riviera from a small fishing village to an international star.

France’s most mysterious prisoner, known simply as the Man in the Iron Mask, was held in a 17th-century fort offshore from Cannes on Île Sainte-Marguerite. It is believed now that the man was, in fact, a cowardly soldier named Vivien de Bulonde. Louis XIV ordered him to be imprisoned, and to walk the battlements during the day wearing a mask.

The inventors of cinema, the French Lumiere brothers, shot many silent films along the stunning Cote d'Azur.
