    It's been many, many years since I visited Mont St. Michel. Thanks for all the great pictures which remind me of how unique it is. Ironically there is a similar place named St. Michael's Mount near Cornwall, England that looks so similar!

    I have always wanted to see Mont St Michel but to date have never made it here. it looks very busy but I can see why, as it's a spectacular place! I have never seen gargoyles for sale before - were you tempted ot buy one?!! I love the views from the West Terrace, and the distant view of the Mont itself :-)

    Wow, the views from the distance are quite spectacular, especially with the land and the hay balls in front! Haha, laughed about the gargoyles for sale, I might.... consider :-) Lovely cloister yes and I find it fascinating how they got the goods up the hill!

    That's a great place to visit. I only visited its equivalent - St Michael's Mount in Cornwall. But there the causeway gets flooded and then you have to take a boat to get to the castle. Loved your pictures!
