Stunning Mont Saint Michel

One of the Normandy’s gems, Mont Saint Michel is a France Island listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.

Every year Mont Saint Michel offers a unique travel experience to nearly two and a half million of visitors, pilgrims and tourists. Characterized by a medieval monastery and a breathtaking Bay, Mont Saint Michel has always been subject to some of the biggest tidal ranges in the world, creating unique and spectacular setting.

The fortified village developed alongside the Abbey, originally was built to keep the enemies out; the monastery was a renowned center of learning and was the attraction for some of the greatest minds in Europe. Today the buildings along the sharp village streets are converted into museums, hotels, restaurants and boutiques.

The light reflecting on the landscape during the day creates a constant change of scenery making Mont Saint Michel a unique place.
