Description

This place looks like something out of a fantasy movie - as if a dragon could fall down at any moment when entering the walls. But you have not entered a parallel universe - you have just discovered the Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel. This amazing world heritage site is located just off the rocky coast of Normandy. It's a medieval must! Explore 20 rooms, breathtaking gardens and enjoy a panoramic view of sea and sky.

Le Mont Saint-Michel is a small island community in Normandy, and the Abbey du Mont Saint-Michel is definitely its crowning glory. It towers above everything like a great stone soldier when the waves crash onto its rocky shores. The veneration of the Archangel Michel first took place at this place in 708 AD, making it the best place for a medieval pilgrimage.

In the 10th century the Benedictine monks recognised its importance and immediately began to build a real abbey here. In 1874 the abbey was declared a protected monument, after the monks had left in 1790. Today, thanks to its airy interior and majestic location, it attracts as many people as it did hundreds of years ago.

With over 20 rooms and towers rising above the city below, there is much to discover. You can also join a guided group for free - just ask when you arrive and you will be placed in a group for a tour.

As you stroll through the abbey, take the opportunity to watch the tide roll in and out (it has the highest tidal variations in Europe, high and low tide of up to 15 metres in just six hours). When you reach the top of the abbey, you will be rewarded with incredible panoramas; you will feel like the king of a French castle. Or the abbot of a French abbey.
