A Medieval Abbey trapped by Tides and Time

Mont Saint-Michel emerges from the tides in Normandy, France, like an ancient village from a fairytale.

The coastal town built on a massive granite rock cuts a dramatic silhouette against the sky, rising from disappearing marshes to a Gothic Abbey at its height. With a permanent population of around 50, this popular tourist destination has a history dating back to at least the Roman era.
