Mont Saint-Michel and its Abbey:
an exceptional heritage site
Mont Saint-Michel village, a timeless place
Although Mont Saint-Michel is a world-famous landmark, it’s also a real village with a lovely atmosphere. Enjoy a stroll through the medieval streets with their pretty houses, restaurants and little shops. As you head up the Grande Rue, Mont Saint-Michel’s main street, look up and admire the old shop signs hanging from the stone walls for a journey back in time!
You can walk round the ramparts protecting the village to enjoy a spectacular view across the surrounding bay. You’ll pass seven towers as you follow the walls to the Abbey, the “Merveille” (marvel) of the Western world.
