Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel
Aubert, Bishop of Avranches, founded an oratory on this island after the Archangel St Michael appeared three times to him. This was replaced in the early 8C by a Carolingian abbey, and subsequently modified and extended over later centuries. Today, monks and nuns from the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem maintain a permanent spiritual presence in this oasis of calm amid one of the world's most visited tourist sites. The visit takes in a maze of corridors, staircases and floors.
