Rampards are the paths on top of fortification walls and Le Mont Saint Michel has many of them. It's actually almost possible to completely walk around the rocky islands bases on these rampards, which is a recommended walk from my side. From here you constantly look up over the roofs of the village towards the walls of the abbey. On the other side the always changing view over the bay of Mont Saint Michel. when the tides role in, it's even hard to get a spot along the rampards walls to watch this natural phenomena. At the end of the rampards one arrives at the "Grand Stairs", that will lead you streight into the abbey.

Directions: First access to the rampards is immediately left up the stairs from the entrance gate square.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
