Full description

Discover one of the world's first UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a visit to Mont-Saint-Michel abbey. Explore the site with a self-guided tour aided by an information booklet and learn the fascinating history of the site entirely at your own pace.

The worship of Saint Michel was introduced on the holy mount in 708 and it became one of the most important places of medieval pilgrimage. Benedictine Monks began building an abbey here in the 10th century.   The abbey has withstood the assaults of man, time, and the elements. The heroic resistance of the mount to English attacks during the Hundred Years’ War (14th and 15th centuries) made it a symbol of French national identity. 

Monks left the abbey in 1790 and it was listed as a historic monument in 1874. The whole site has been returned to its former glory thanks to ongoing restoration work.

Asked for a guided tour but none in English on weekends. Used the audio guide instead, saved the headphones from the hop on hop off bus and plugged it in and shared the guide between two. No guides for children. The numbering signs for the tour were hard to see at the start of the tour. This improved towards the end.

Chouette activité à faire. On l’a fait à pied du parking au MSM, 30-40min, c’est mieux que d’être cloisonné dans un bus bondés. On conseille de le faire tôt, départ parking 8h40 pour arriver a 9h30, un peu tôt mais super pour avoir moins de monde. Les gens arrivaient quand on repartait vers 11h. Prévoir un sandwich et boissons parce que les sandwichs à 5-7€ et coca 3-4€ ça fait cher.

Our visit went much smoother than expected, apart from car park exit. You can pay with credit card at the exit barrier, however not knowing this we paid near the information Kiosk at the parking machines there. However the exit barrier took our prepaid ticket and wouldn’t let us out. After much explaining that we had put a paid ticket in (even showing the credit card transaction in our bank account) and being told numerous times to repay with credit card at the machine we were finally let out. The rest of the experience lived up to expectations. We walked rather than taking the tram there as at 10am there seemed to be only one tram picking up at a time with a 10minute wait. The walk was maybe 25minutes in beautiful surroundings, so not arduous and very pleasant. We caught the tram back as they were pretty much continuous by then.
