Highlights

  • Visit one of the most important places of medieval pilgrimage, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site on a tiny island off the coast of Normandy
  • Get a free guided group visit and explore the rooms and towers, take in panoramic views, and see where Archangel Michel has been worshiped since 708
  • See Europe's greatest tidal variations - as much as 15 meters in six hours, from a 13th-century religious compound

Description

It looks straight out of a fantasy film - as if dragons might swoop down as you enter. But you haven't stepped into a parallel universe - you've just discovered the Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel. This astounding World Heritage Site lies just off the rocky coast of Normandy. It's a medieval must-see! Explore 20 rooms, stunning gardens, and get panoramic views of the sea and sky.

Le Mont Saint-Michel is a small island commune in Normandy, and the Abbaye du Mont Saint-Michel is most definitely its crowning glory, looming over it all like a big stone soldier as the waves crash on its rocky shores. The worship of Archangel Michel first occurred in this spot in 708 AD, making it 'the' place for a medieval pilgrimage.

In the 10th century the Benedictine monks realized its importance and promptly set about building a proper abbey here. In 1874 the abbey was listed as a historic monument; this was after the monks said their goodbyes in 1790. It draws as many crowds today as it did hundreds of years ago - thanks to its airy interior and majestic position.

With over 20 rooms and spires and towers looming over the town below, there's plenty to explore. You can also join a guided group for free - just ask when you arrive and you'll be placed in a group for a tour.

As you walk around the abbey, take the chance to watch the tide roll in and out (it has Europe's highest tidal variations, swelling and dropping as much as 15 meters in as little as six hours). Reaching the summit of the abbey will reward you with unbelievable panoramas; you'll feel like the king of a French castle. Or the abbot of a French abbey.

Très pratique le e-ticket qui permet de passer directement.
Mais j ai quand même fait un peu la queue car une visite Avec guide-conférencière, en plus petit groupe et d une durée de 2h30 (au lieu d 1h en grand groupe) était également possible, à 13€ au lieu de 10€. Très riche, cette visite documentée et vivante a été un vrai plaisir, pour tout le groupe de passionnés et aussi pour ma fille de 12 ans !
Dommage que cette option ne soit pas disponible via le site Tiqets.

Excellente visite guidée de l'abbaye. Les escaliers font un peu mal aux mollets.

le mont saint michel était magnifique et très impressionnant ! nous avons eu beaucoup de chance avec le temps. Un conseil : préparez un déjeuner, les restaurants sont tous les memes et assez cher .. Aussi, j'avais pris les billets en avance pour la visite de l'abbaye mais finalement il n'y avait pas grande monde. cependant je recommande quand meme d'utiliser Tiquets.com.
