For stunning medieval architecture that is surprisingly intact and well preserved, visit Mont Saint-Michel. You'll be amazed by the abbey's staggering architectural marvels dating back to the Roman Empire, as well as the visible time progression of this massive megastructure, which takes you on a journey towards more Gothic styles. The monastery and abbey are at the very top of the town, supplying panoramic views of the entire island and surrounding waters. You can book a guided tour or, if you prefer to wander on your own, pick up an audio guide in English. The welcome center also offers a free printed brochure that makes a great souvenir.

  • A magnificent and majestic monument with a strong soul through the different rooms and Crypts. A special mention for 2 superb places: the South Terrace and of course the cloister. The price is reasonable (€10) for an unguided visit given the number of things to see and that we can stay the time you wish. Be careful to prepare your calves in relation to the number of steps.

  • One of the best attractions of France undoubtedly, a magical and beautiful place. Only the coming and going of the tides, it would be an unmissable attraction, but the fortification is beautiful, a turn in time. We Didn't go to the abbey for lack of time, but I think it's worth a visit. It Has some difficulty to access old people, but it is very worthwhile. I Recommend sleeping inside the walls, not hitting and returning from Paris, but if not possible, at least at the various hotels within the parking area. We Recommend the Hotel Gabriel. Transport to the hill, exit the parking area every 15 minutes and stay straight until midnight.
