Culture and education

Visit the mont-saint-michel abbey, one of the first landmarks to be listed a unesco world heritage site. Discover its history and admire the magnificent view of the bay from the monument!

An important pilgrimage site from the 8th to the 18th century, the abbey is a testament to both the religious and miltary architecture of the medieval period. Its steep rocky nature and the tide that cuts the island off from the continent are natural defenses that medieval architects and builders reinforced by constructing impressive defensive structures and tours.

Today, the site has become a national French symbol. The abbey houses the abbey church, cloister, dining hall, monk passage and the unmissable Merveille gardens. Explore the site at your own pace and discover the rich cultural history of the most famous French island!

Before entering the abbey, take a stroll through the picturesque town and narrow streets. You will be spellbound by the landmark's authenticity! Once on the Mont-Saint-Michel promenade, admire the magnificent panoramic view of the bay and the world's largest tide.
