Le Mont-Saint-Michel

The Essential
Highly recommended
Mont Saint Michel's position, history and architecture itself make this a "marvel of the West". The mysteries that shroud it defy the imagination: moving sands, sudden mists, tides that run in "at the speed of a galloping horse"...Visitors in quest of absolution may be disappointed by the motley crowd which lays siege to the town and its souvenir stalls. The true spirit of the place is to be found in the marvellous abbey, defying the sea upon its rock.
