The Mont Saint Michel: A visual tour

The Mont Saint Michel (Saint Michael’s Mount) is a marvel of medieval architecture set in one of the most beautiful bays of the world in Normandy, and part of the top 3 most visited sites in France, attracting about 3 million visitors per year.The mount itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site and its 1300-year history is unravelled in our article about the adventurous crossing of its bay, also UNESCO World Heritage site. In its surroundings, its meadows are regularly submerged by the sea water, and only very specific plants can grown there. These give the salt meadow lambs (agneaux de pré salés) grazing on them their a very characteristic, delicate, and delicious taste.

Here is a compilation of photographs of the Mont Saint Michel to inspire you.  All of these are available in a high definition upon request (all rights reserved).
