Amazing: Mont Saint Michel by night
Sheep in their hundreds on the saltwater grasslands, with the unchangeable silhouette of Mont Saint Michel on the sand. Visiting Mont Saint Michel by night is a fantastic way to discover this mythical sanctuary, a Mecca for tourism and pilgrimage.
Mont Saint-Michel is illuminated from dusk until midnight throughout the year. This is when the place has an extra-special enigmatic and spiritual atmosphere. It is far from the hustle and bustle and the endless stream of tourists who crowd the narrow streets of the ancient medieval city during the day.
Visit the abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel, a fine example of medieval architecture from the 11th to the 16th century. Take a stroll along the ramparts and the walkways, on the side of the King's Tower, between town houses classified as historical monuments and ancient timber-framed buildings.
Learn about the history and origins of the Mount on a visit to the Archeoscope, the historical museum, the museum of the sea and ecology, or the Tiphaine, home of Bertrand Duguesclin.
Nature lovers will adore taking a beautiful hike on the discovery trails in the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, taking care however not to be trapped by the highest tides in Europe ...
