About this place

Mont-Saint-Michel has the particularity of being built on a rocky island with a 960-metre circumference and an altitude of 92 metres. When the tide is high, the island is surrounded by the waters of the Channel. The prodigious architecture of Mont Saint-Michel and its bay have made this one of the most visited tourist sites in France. At the top of the island stands the famous majestic abbey of Mont Saint-Michel, which towers 170-metres above the bay. At Mont-Saint-Michel, you must taste the wood-grilled lamb from the salt meadows accompanied by the famous omelette of mère Poulard.

Tourist Information


In short

  • The Mont Saint-Michel is the most popular touristic site in Normandy, and the most popular French touristic site after Paris.
  • Mont Saint-Michel is famous for its abbey, with the peak of the Mont, 170 meters above sea level, a statue which overlooks the bay. The ramparts, and other buildings, are classified as historic monuments. You can visit them. Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem are in Mont Saint-Michel all year long.
  • Mont Saint-Michel bay is a splendid landscape, with major high tides. You can cross the bay even in low tide, but you can only visit it on a guided tour, not on your own, because of the risks concerning high tides and shifting sands.
  • Music academies organize indoor concerts inside the monuments in May and September.
  • The "mouton de pré-salé" (in English, "salt meadow sheep") is a local culinary specialty, an animal bred on the seashore. The Mère Poulard cuisine is quite renowned; the Mère Poulard inn welcomes many pilgrims every year.
