Mont Saint Michel abbey
A tour of the Benedictine abbey on Mont Saint Michel, a listed UNESCO world heritage site, is a definate must during your stay in Normandy.
The building itself is a religious and military architectural masterpiece dating back to the Middle Ages which attracts thousands of tourists and pilgrims every year. Fom the 8th to the 18th century the abbey was the capital of christianity in Europe.
To see and do :
Self-guided tours, commented and audio-guided tours of the abbey church, the cloister, the monk's walk, the refectory, the gardens, the west-facing terrace overlooking the bay of Mont Saint Michel, the evening « sound and light » show or concert-promenade in the summer...
Our favourite :
The fun, « family» tour of the abbey (including riddles to resolve, objects to find, models to put together, visits of rooms not usually open to the public...)
