Rich in monastic tradition and history, the smallest and most distant of the two Lérins Islands (1500 meters/4921 feet long by 400 meters/1312 feet wide and some three kilometeres/two miles in circumference) used to be called Lérina. It has fertile soil and magnificent trees, notably Aleppo pines. A reef protects the south side of the island against the sea. Once on the island, make sure you visit the abbey Notre-Dame de Lérins, its main attraction.
