Le Mont-Saint-Michel is an island in Normandy, France. The original site was founded by an Irish hermit. The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times and since the 8th century has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. Most of the time it is surrounded by vast sandbanks and becomes an island only when the tides are very high. Before the construction of the 3,000-foot causeway that connects the island to land, it was particularly difficult to reach because of quicksand and very fast-rising tides.

Loved it. I’ve searched around Mont St M, but only on Google/online. Would love to go.
Pity about al the inane adverts: the price of being a popular blogger.
My, they’re trash, though.
Fantastico articolo con immagini quasi irreali per la loro bellezza.
Buon fine settimana e un saluto,silvia
