Mont Saint Michel
For centuries, the island of Mont Saint Michel and its abbey have been an endearing place of pilgrimage and a long-standing symbol of France. Located 1 km in the bay shared by Normandy and Brittany, the gravity-defying abbey is truly spectacular for its unique location and the combination of its Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Those wishing to follow in the footsteps of other pilgrims may be interested in crossing the bay on foot with a guide during low tide.
The region surrounding the Mont is marked by rich agricultural land, as well as by the pastures of the AOC and POC pre-salted lamb. Visitors will also find local producers of Norman cider and Calvados, characteristic of the region.
The Mont and its abbey, known under the name of "Les Merveille", have been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its impressive view over of the bay, it is one of the most visited and impressive sites in France.
