Mont Saint Michel : a miracle or a mirage?
A day spent there will be a day that you will never forget.
From the ramparts of the medieval town walls, built to protect
the town from invaders, you can admire the magnificent view of
the bay and the surrounding salt marshes. The huge tide that
used to cover the causeway leading to the island twice a day is
the second highest rising tide in the world, second only to the
Bay of Fundy in Canada.
You can also just wander around the steep cobble stone streets
of this town, exploring their narrow winding routes discovering
new treasures around every corner, take a wander through the
souvenir shops, try one of Mere Poulard’s famous Omelette, or,
if you prefer, eat in one of the other restaurants or
With two and a half million visitors a year, Mont Saint Michel
is without a shadow of a doubt Normandy’s most spectacular
single spot to visit, considered by the Normans to be the Real
7th Wonder of the World .
