Take the Mont Saint Michel tour to admire a unique French monument

Mont St. Michel or Le Mont Saint Michel is a mainland cooperative and island in the Normandy region of France. Located about a kilometre off France’s north-western coast near Avranches, the monument expands up to an area of 988 acres. While the island comprises 17 acres, the commune is across 971 acres and has a population of only fifty. On the Mont Saint Michel tour, you will visit this mesmerising wonderland and familiarise yourself with its charm. Find out why it attracts over three million visitors annually and is the second most visited attractions in France.

Visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site

In 1979, UNESCO included Mont St. Michel and its bay to its list of World Heritage Sites. Its rich historical, cultural and architectural importance along with its natural and human-made beauty gave it the title. Over sixty of the cooperative’s structures have been declared as Monument Historique by the French Government. Since the 8th Century AD, the monument has been an important part of France’s glorious history, and it was also an impressive stronghold from ancient times.

St. Michel played an integral role in keeping invaders away during the medieval period. The city was a prison under King Louis XI and stood strong against the English during the Hundred Years War. Visitors with a fascination for European history love exploring the landmark which is loaded with impressive and captivating traces of the medieval culture. Seeing this attraction is a treat for sore eyes. It is named after the large monastery that sits on the island, which derived its name from the archangel, Michael. Since the early medieval era and the beginning of the 8th century, the former Mont-Tombe holds the first oratory in the name of the archangel. During your Mont Saint Michel tour, you will come across the 156-metre tall gilded statue which depicts him slaying the dragon.
