sculptorMount St. Michelle is a tidal island in Normandy, France. The location of the monastery on a small island just a few hundred meters from land makes it possible for pilgrims to reach the monastery at low tide, but when the tide comes, the fighter will be stranded, driven or submerged, a good place to protect. The island was unconquered during the hundred years of war; a small garrison resisted the full-scale British attack of 1433.
sculptorThe monastery of Mount Saint-Michel, a tidal island in Normandy, France, about a kilometer from the northwest coast of France and on the mouth of the Cusnon River near Afranche, is an important part of the town structure built by feudal society. The top is God, and the bottom is the Abbey. Down here, the hall, then the warehouse and the house, and at the bottom (outside the wall) the house of fishermen and peasants. Since 1862, the Abbey has been protected as a historical site in France.
This medieval Benedictine monastery is one of the most spectacular sights in Europe. Dating back to the eighth century, Mont Saint-Michel sits atop an island in the Bay of Saint-Michel at the convergence of Brittany and Normandy. Visitors can reach the abbey on foot, by bus or maringote (horse-drawn carriage). For a treat, stay on the island and enjoy a world-renowned omelet at La Mère Poulard or Normandy specialties, such as crepes and galettes.
At the Cherbourg Harbour in France. Along the breakwater of Fort de Querqueville for some sight seeing. If you’re crossing during the holidays, expect crowds of people boarding ships for crossing.
#mint Saint Michel# One of the ancient historical site, always crowed during summer. It has a long history. Nice place to visit
This castle called Le Mont Saint Michel in the French Normandy is the most romantic and epic place in France. If you are going to get engaged - this is the place for you!
France, Mont Saint-Michel, laughs at the tides and rises
Mont Saint-Michel, and the friends call it the holy mountain.
Say it is a mountain, you don't think that you go to the holy mountain, you can see the mountain view, the rolling hills, or the cloud sea ladder.
wrong! The holy mountain is not the Five Sacred Mountains.
Mont Saint-Michel is the third largest holy place in the Catholic Church except Jerusalem and the Vatican. In the 8th century AD, Cardinal Aube built a small church on the top of the mountain. In the period of 1211-1228, the Mayer's Monastery was built on the mountain.
Sacred Mountain is not only a pilgrimage site for Catholics, but also a favorite of tourists.
During the day, the holy mountain is surrounded by large sand mud. When the tide rises in the evening, the tide will flood the shoal of the holy mountain to the land, making the holy mountain an island.
During the day, the island looks very cold, but at night, this island has only a low-key share.
wrong! The holy mountain is not an ordinary island. In the daytime, the holy mountain is also approachable, but in the evening, the holy mountain is absolutely proud of the rivers and lakes!
Tourists from afar, this is the beautiful night view. The
tide rises and falls brings beautiful scenery and also the outcome of the war.
In the English-French Hundred Years War between 1337 and 1453, 119 French soldiers hid in the monastery on the hill and fought the British for 24 years! Because every time as long as it stays for a long time, the tide rises up, it will drown the British army to attack the mountain, which has won valuable rest time for the French defenders. In this protracted war, the Holy Mountain is the only place in France that has not fallen.
Hugo once said that Mont Saint-Michel is as important to France as the pyramid to Egypt.
Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, equivalent to the Potala Palace in Tibet, is a pilgrimage site for the Christians and a NO.1 attraction for tourists. In fact, the panoramic view of Mont Saint-Michel has to be blue in the evening, and the lights on the mountain are good to see. If there is water, the reflection is very beautiful. However, because the temperature is too low, the temperature of the body is about a few degrees. The first thing we wear in the autumn clothes is to go back to the hotel during the day. The first thing is to rush into the toilet and huddle together to hold the radiator. There is no courage to go out at night.
St. Huel writes that the Michelle Mountain Scenic Area has a free shuttle bus that takes visitors to the foot of Mont Saint-Michel. Visitors cannot drive their private cars to the mountains. I dont know much about the history of Mont Saint-Michel. To sum up, this is a story of a mountain in the past and a temple on the mountain. This seaside hill is called Mont Saint-Michel and the temple built on it is called the Mont Saint Michel Abbey.
Many visitors to Mont Saint-Michel will choose to stay in nearby cities, such as Saint-Malo, but we choose to stay in the Mont Saint-Michel Scenic Area. Most of the attractions are MOTEL, and the price is not cheap. There are several hotels in the scenic area, but all the vehicles entering the scenic area must be the guests of the hotel, so the hotel will provide the guest with the password for the access control. However, our hotel did not inform in advance, so our car was stuck at the access control, and the area was pressed a lot. Press the call bell, the call staff will not speak English. Later, a girl came to help translate, the scenic staff also rushed on a small bicycle, and finally Xiaoyue hit the hotel phone to verify the information before they got the password to enter the scenic spot. Check in when asked the front desk for not telling the password in advance, the front desk said innocently, because I don't know your email address.
La Mere Poulard, a restaurant in Mont Saint-Michel, is just a short walk up the mountain pass. It features a huge, fragile quiche, similar to the omelette, which we all feel. Later, when I ordered the dessert, the two speculated that the French menu saw a word like caramel and apple and ordered a dessert. The dessert was a big bite with foamy applesauce, and we both In the face of the waiter, he laughed.
