Learn More About Mont Saint-Michel

Approximately one half mile off the northwest coast of Normandy, a small island rises almost as a mirage out of the sea. Sitting atop the rocky islet is the 'Wonder of the West', a Gothic-style Benedictine abbey dedicated to the archangel St Michael, and the village (population: 50) that grew up in the shadow of its great walls. Built between the 11th and 16th centuries, the abbey is a technical and artistic tour de force, having had to adapt to the problems posed by being constructed among powerful tides that move "as swiftly as a galloping horse".

Since the 8th century one of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations, this holy island and its breathtaking bay is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Considered an essential stop on every grand European tour, generations of stylish travelers and devoted spiritual seekers have flocked to this remote locale, renowned not only for its natural beauty but for a rich and fascinating history.
