Mont Saint-Michel is a beautiful pyramid-like structure floating in the gulf of Saint-Malo. Surrounded by walls and gates, the entire island is a small town with a monastery, lodges, and stores to welcome pilgrims. The island is known as the "Wonder of the West" for its graceful appearance that changes with the time of day and the tide.
Mont Saint-Michel Area
Mont Saint-Michel is a world-famous monastery floating on the sea. It can be visited on a day trip from Paris, but it is also a luxurious experience to stay overnight and visit the surrounding villages and towns, or spend time watching Mont Saint-Michel from the other side of the sea as it changes its appearance with the light and tides.
