Mont Saint Michel

A French village in Normandy, Mont Saint Michel is unusually built on a rocky islet surrounded by a magnificent bay. In the middle of the sand, like a jewel in its box, Mont Saint Michel is the third most popular tourist destination in France, after the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, this place attracts visitors from across the world.
