Lerins Abbey in Cannes

France is rich in monuments of culture and architecture with ancient history. Catholics from all over the world come to the country in order to bow before the outstanding shrines. One of them is Lerinsky Abbey on the island of Sainte Honor (it is 3 km from Cannes). The abbey has a rich history, famous residents, later saints. The architecture of 86 buildings impresses not only with its unusualness, but also with its age. Millennial towers, fortresses, chapels became the decoration of the island. Silent monks cultivate the land, growing grapes, oranges, lavender. Many wanderers come to the island for monastic wine and liquor. An interesting episode of life on the island is the “festival of silence”, the participants of which can be only a couple of dozen present at the Cannes film festival. They share a vow of silence with the monks, retiring to Saint-Honor.
