Where Is Mont St. Michel?
A rocky, tidal island and coastal community on the northwest coast of France in the Normandy region. The 17-acre island is a granite outcropping formed by erosion and surrounded by a marshy silt-laden bay one half mile off the coast and accessible via raised causeway. The parking area is 1.5 miles from the island and the Barrage sur le Couesnon can be crossed by foot or shuttle. The nearest town with a train station is Pontorson, 20 minutes south. Paris is 4 hours east via train or car.
What Is Mont St. Michel Known For?
The French icon is a monastic village that could best be described as a fortified-abbey-island. Though the first monastery was built in the 8th century, the island had been used for centuries prior as a pilgrimage site and cultural stronghold known as Mont Tombe. The main structure of the compound is the large, Romanesque church that sits at the peak of the mount and was originally built in the 11th century. Updated with many Gothic additions and fortified throughout the years, including serving as a prison for many years during the French Revolution, the abbey was designated a historical monument by France in 1874. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, the island contains 60 buildings, 50 of which are shops, restaurants, or hotels, and less than 25 residents, half of whom are monks or nuns.
