Mont-Saint-Michel - a chapel by Beausoleil 2 Star this if you like it!

To visit the Abbey Church you hike up to it and then purchase a ticket for admission. It is worth the hike and the admission. The cult of Saint Michael was introduced in 708 on the Mont, which became one of the greatest centers of medieval pilgrimage. The Benedictines built an abbey there from the 10th century. A challenge to the onslaught of men, time and the elements. During the Hundred Years War (14th-15th centuries), the heroic resistance of the Mont to the English made it a symbolic place of national identity. It was one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Left by the monks in 1790, the abbey was classified as a historic monument in 1874. The entire site has regained its past splendor thanks to constant restoration work.
