WHAT IS MONT SAINT MICHEL?
Located close to the western boundary of Normandy, Mont Saint Michel is a granite mount whose peak rises 240ft above the sea towering over its vast namesake bay. Crowning the mount is the marvellous Abbey church dedicated to the Archangel Michael which is almost 1000 years old. The tides measured in the Bay of Mont Saint Michel are ranked the highest in Europe and give the mount an insular character
several times a year.
WHY SHOULD ONE
VISIT MONT SAINT MICHEL?
First and foremost, Mont Saint Michel represents an architectural masterpiece. Included on UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979, the sanctuary's history spans over 1300 years. The Abbey is considered to be the most visited place in Normandy and is also being regarded as the second most visited place in France after Paris. No doubt this is an ideal day-trip for people visiting Normandy or even Paris (by train via Caen or Bayeux).

PLEASE NOTE The Abbey is open all-year round (except January 1st, May 1st and December 25th). Most of the time the tide does not hinder access to the Mount. However, there are a few days a year when the amplitude of the tide reaches 12.85m (approx. 42ft) rendering the Mount temporarily inaccessible.
