Mont Saint-Michel

Mont Saint-Michel, a UNESCO world heritage site, has become famous to the world and thousands of tourist flock each year for a Mont St. Michel tour.


Mont St Michel France is situated on a island on the Normandy coast, near Brittany. At high tide, Mont St Michel is almost entirely separated from the mainland. Only a narrow causeway, constructed in the 1880s preserves a link to the coast. A bridge to replace the causeway and allow the circulation of tidal waters in the bay costing 164 milion euro is scheduled for completion in 2012. The lower parking lot is submerged during high tide.
