Mont Saint Michel tour
Mont Saint Michel (2h walking tour)
This world famous site is one of the wonders of Christendom.
The Mont Saint Michel is located in a bay where the tides are of the highest in the world and is built
on a rocky island of 900m circumference at its base,80m in height.
Behind the fortification walls, which date from the Hundred Years’ War, you will discover the village and its oldest Normandy style houses and parish church.
Arriving at the top of the mount, you will visit the Abbey, built for Benedictine monks between the
11th and 15th centuries. During this sightseeing tour, you will hear about the history and function of this abbey and be able to marvel at the abbey church, the ancient refectories and chapels, the ‘big wheel’…and, of course, learn about St Michael (the Archangel Mickael) whose statue stands on top of the steeple.
