Le Mont-Saint-Michel

Unfortunately, I wasn't too lucky with the weather on the second day of my stay in Normandy. I visited the world famous landmark Mont-Saint-Michel on a day with a constant drizzle. I would like to share this, I think, classic view of the place nonetheless.

Le Mont-Saint-Michel is located on a rocky tidal island, 600 metres from land, making it accessible on foot during low tide (and nowadays always by a new bridge). The island has been the site of a monastery of the same name since the eighth century. In 1979 the island and the surrounding bay were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Forty-four people currently live at Mont-Saint-Michel, but it is the third most visited tourist spot in France with more than three million visitors annually.
