Discover the towering citadel of Mont-St.-Michel
(right and below), rising from the tidal
flats like a castle in a dream. Ascend its winding streets to enter the
abbey and see the halls and chambers where the monks lived out their lives,
bounded by the rising tides that cut them off from France twice a day.
Note: If walking uphill is difficult for you, you can still go and stay just
inside the entrance, browse the shops, and sit at a small cafe and wait
while others climb to the top.
St. Malo is a quaint walled city, but can be seen in just a few minutes. Do
not miss Mont St. Michel.
