Top 500 places to visit before you die (P.35) Mont Saint-Michel: One of the most visited tourist destinations in France


( Mont-Saint-Michel is a tidal island and mainland commune in Normandy, France.

The island and bay have been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, along with more than 60 houses on the island classified as Historic Monuments of France. Thanks to its unique ancient architecture from the 15th and 16th centuries and interesting features in the ebb and flow of the tides, the island is the most visited tourist destination in France, just behind the Eiffel Tower and Versailles castle.


The island of Mont Saint Michel is connected to the mainland by a 3 km-long land bridge hidden under the ebb and flow of the tide. The island has Gothic architecture, typically with pointed arches, many windows of the same size, and familiar architectural features of palaces or churches. The island is made up of granite, along with a bed of molten lava that entered 525 million years ago, so it is extremely solid and solid. At low tide, the sand is exposed allowing for comfortable sightseeing around any place. When the tide rises, the entire island of Mont Saint Michel is like floating on the water.


Grand Rue is quite narrow, it is always crowded with people. Here you will easily find yourself unique souvenirs and even restaurants serving delicious dishes. Along the street are houses built from the 15th and 16th centuries, possessing architecture with an ancient but unique and impressive Western style.


The deeper you go inside and the higher you go, the quieter the space is, far from the hustle and bustle at the foot of the castle. In harmony with that quiet space, there is the sound of gulls flapping wings, seagulls, and the sound of waves.


The Mont-Saint-Michel is an abbey located within the city and island of Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy, in the department of Manche. The abbey is an essential part of the structural composition of the town the feudal society constructed. On top, God, the abbey, and monastery; below this, the Great halls, then stores and housing, and at the bottom (outside the walls), fishermen's and farmers' housing.


The food is something you should not miss coming here, especially two famous dishes, omelets and crepes, are quite crowded, so it's best to book a table in advance if you don't want to wait too long.
