Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy is one of France’s most iconic, legendary, and visited landmarks. This little island, in one of the officially most beautiful bays in the world, is a record breaker, a place conceived with the help of an angel with a pointy finger, and home to a building that seems to defy gravity.
It’s a site so wondrous that it has inspired artists, musicians, and writers for centuries from Monet to Marilyn Monroe. Kings, Queens and presidents have walked its streets just as much in awe as any tourist. Its spiritual Gothic beauty has influenced many films including the Lord of the Rings. This “pyramid of the seas” is a miraculous marvel and one of the wonders of the world. Find out about the legends, the history, the world famous omelettes – and more!
