Visit Mont-Saint-Michel, the most visited landmark in France outside of Paris. Mont-Saint-Michel is a pilgrimage site and tourist icon. The abbey soars over a granite island that seems to float on water. Have your camera ready for the most breathtaking views of an island abbey that seems to rise like a miraculous mirage out of the sea. The island was isolated from the coast by a tidal wave, creating a visual phenomenon that can be seen today at high tide—an abbey that seems to float on water. During the Middle Ages, the abbey was an important pilgrimage site for those honoring the Archangel Michael. Learn about the construction of the abbey from the 11th through the 16th centuries. Stroll through this wonder of France and admire the beautiful colonnaded cloister constructed out of local stone. After your visit to the abbey, enjoy free time to stroll the village.
