Built between sand, sea and sky, Mont-Saint-Michel really is one of the most amazing creations of the Middle Ages.
The quite spectacular Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey is built on a small rocky island which dominates a huge tidal bay, so it is surrounded by the sea at high tide, and by the sands at low tide. Its unique architectural and natural beauty make it one of the most visited tourist sites in Normandy, indeed in the whole of France.
A masterpiece of Medieval architecture, Mont-Saint-Michel was classified as a French Historical Monument in 1874 and has featured on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1979. Built between sand, sea and sky, Mont-Saint-Michel really is one of the most amazing creations of the Middle Ages. As it emerges out of the bay, you will find it impossible not to fall under its spell.
