Mont St. Michel Tour
This tour will take you to Mont St. Michel and on the drive, you’ll see the beauty of the Emerald Coast and hear about the history of Mont with its well-kept secrets and forbidden stories.
One of the most visited sites in the world, this abbey built from the 10th century is located on a rocky island that has been separated from the continent for centuries.
Built at the time of the dukes of Normandy, it was conquered by the French king in 1204 and mostly rebuilt in the 13th century. These new additions were called ” the marvel”. Used by the benedictine monks who wrote famous manuscripts, it became an intense cultural and spiritual center, visited by different kings and bishops of the time. The visit of the abbey allows us to admire the skill of the architects of the 13th century as well as the outstanding view on the bay at low or high tide. Also conceived as a fortress to defend it against the English during the hundred years war, you’ll be able to walk on the ramparts on the way down to the village crowded all year long. An unforgettable experience in a unique site.
The tour will lead us to visit and explore the Abbey, the Church, the Monastery. You will learn about the pilgrims and the history of France throughout the centuries. After a complete tour of Mont, you’ll enjoy the world-famous omelet of the Mere Poulard.
After the Mont St Michel, I will drive you to Avranches to see the ancient manuscripts made by the monks from Medieval Times to the French Revolution.
There I will also show you the relic of Aubert, the founder of the Mont 1300 years ago.
Then you will go to Villedieu Les Poeles to see how church bells are made in a unique factory keeping this medieval tradition.
