Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel
The striking Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel is a medieval masterpiece situated in the city and island of Mont-Saint-Michel in Lower Normandy. It was one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites and remains a popular tourist draw. Built at a height of 80 meters it offers jaw-dropping views of the coast and bay.
Visitors can explore the Romanesque and Gothic architecture in several rooms, as well as the salty seaside surroundings.
The Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel is on a tiny island off the coast of Normandy. This UNESCO World Heritage Site makes for a stunning daytrip.
We could not stay to watch the water rise
My kids were tired and we had a long drive back but the site tour was nice and kids enjoyed putting their feet in the mud
Really disliked all the tourist junk shops!
