"The Mont Saint Michel" Mont Saint Michel by Peter_P
Mont Saint Michel Travel Guide: 296 reviews and 957 photos
Covered in fog, surrounded by the sea, the Mont Saint Michel is one of the most fascinating places in France. Stategicaly build on the border between Mormandy and Brittany, the Mont-Tombe (original name) developed from a smal abbey to a large Benedictin Monastery. The worship of Archangel Michaël brought millions of 'miquelots' (pilgrims) tp the mount. Nowadays these pelgrims are in the minority, and the tourists come by the millions...
As you can see, there is a major car park just in front. Not many people today...:) maybe because of the weather conditions. It doesn't matter, the less people the better...!
Be careful, by high tide, it is possible certain parts of this park can be closed because they are under sea-level... You don't want to find your car drifting away...
Strange photo...:) No one is on it !! As people go in and out, it is difficult to take a picture where no one is on it. Just a lucky moment...:-)
- Pros:A 'must see' in France...
- Cons:Too crowded in summertime...
- In a nutshell:Enjoy the originality of this monument...
Builded on the top of the 'mont' the monastery overlooks the whole region. Different styles of architecture dominates... more travel advice
