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.

Our online-purchased Tiqets allowed us to bypass the line for immediate entry, getting to visit one of the great pilgrimage sites on the planet. A hot climb to the Abby in August, but definitely worth it. Recommended.

We bought our tickets online and had no problems whatsoever. The Abbey is a great place to visit with a good atmosphere, an amazing history. Extremely busy, the local advice we received prior to the visit was hugely beneficial - go through the gates, turn immediately and go up onto the ramparts to access the Abbey. Brilliant advice, avoided the over commercialised and overcrowded street to the abbey. Being able to avoid the very long queue to the Abbey through the prepaid ticket was also a bonus and saved a lot of time.

A lovely place to visit with plenty to see and very nice views however I would not recommend bringing a pushchair unless absolutely necessary as the quantity of steps and steep narrow streets make it tough going. Pushchairs that cannot fold small were not permitted in the Abbey and we could not find any dedicated area that was safe to leave it either

An amazing and special place full of history. It's not everyday you get knocked out by a building's construction but this one was really something. Go early to avoid the queues and buy your tickets to the Abbaye on line
