Mont Saint-Michel

Citytrip Mont Saint Michel En

The iconic Mont Saint-Michel abbey is located on an island just off the coast of Normandy. The medieval monastery is located on a tidal island, so that the island lies in the sea at high tide and the seabed dries up at low tide. Check what the tides are before your visit, because it may just be that the access road to the island is under water.

To get to Mont Saint-Michel you can take the free shuttle bus or take a nice walk over the pedestrian bridge. Mont Saint-Michel is actually a small village with historic houses, picturesque streets and an abbey on top of the hill. The construction of the medieval monastery started as early as 708 as a tribute to the Archangel Michael. Do not forget to look outside every now and then, because from the island you have a magnificent view over the bay.
