Mont Saint-Michel Tours
There's something about Mont-Saint-Michel that inspires and kick-starts the imagination into high gear. Like, who would have thought to take a little island and embellish its 240 acres like a birthday cake with a monastery and battlements? It all goes back to the 8th century when a Aubert, the bishop of nearby Avranches had a vision from none other than the archangel Michael himself, giving instructions for the construction of an abbey. Fast forward to more than a thousand years later and its Romanesque spires are one of France's most iconic sights, and an unforgettable locale; the government has spent hundreds of millions of francs to date ensuring that absolutely everything remains unchanged. They've even built a dam at the nearby river mouth to control its flow and stave off sediment!
