Mont Saint-Michel Abbey was a centre of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages, and is one of the most remarkable examples of religious and military architecture from the medieval period. The Abbey forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and more than 20 of its rooms are open to visitors. This extraordinary national landmark features a whole host of wonderful works of architecture including the abbatial church, cloister, refectory, monks’ walkway, Merveille gardens and the West terrace overlooking the vast bay.
And why not experience Mont Saint-Michel Abbey in a different way, by attending some of the exceptional concerts held there each year or discovering it at nightfall in July and August by taking a nocturnal walk, accompanied by a music and light display.
