Breathtaking Mont-Saint-Michel is an island commune located at the Normandy coast. Since the 8th century it has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. Its erection started in the 11th century, with an architecture in Romanesque style. Situated about 600 metres from land it has been easily accessible at low tide to pilgrims, but better defensible when high tide came in.
Mont-Saint-Michel surely is one of France's most renowned landmarks, and on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
