The abbey, a unique place to visit at Mont Saint Michel
Mont Saint Michel Abbey, managed by the "Centre des Monuments Nationaux" (national monuments centre), is one of the finest historic sites in Europe. Very soon after its construction, the abbey became an important place of pilgrimage to the christian West and a medieval cultural centre where numerous manuscrips were produced and conserved.
The abbey's architecture demonstrates the technical mastery and know-how of the builder monks in the 13th century.
It is one of the most remarkable examples of medieval and military architecture.
It demonstrates the savoir faire of the builders who succeeded in constructing two, 3-storey buildings on the slope of the rocks. The structures become lighter the nearer they reach the top.
The Abbey-Church, situated at the top of the Mount, lies on crypts creating an 80 metre long platform.
