History of the Mont Saint Michel Abbey
The abbey was built in the Gothic style and dedicated to the Archangel St. Michael. It is home to the Excellent Monastery, located between the sky and the sea. Arcade galleries are supported by columns in a checkerboard pattern. This provides more light and a feeling of lightness. Behind the monastery you will find yourself in an impressive refectory, where the monks gather for a quiet meal. A tour of Mont Saint-Michel is an immersion in the mysteries and secrets of the majestic island and its inhabitants.
After visiting the Abbey, we offer you to stroll through the streets along the bastions. It offers incredibly spectacular views of the bay. The magical beauty of the sand that surrounds the rock is breathtaking even for the most sophisticated travelers. If you have free time, we recommend you trying the traditional dishes of Mont Saint Michel. For example, the famous Breton pancakes. Here you can also visit souvenir shops, traditional village events and some museums.
