Tip from Content Creator

Mont Saint-Michel Mont Saint-Michel Mont Saint-Michel

About an hour from Chateau de Canisy is the beautiful Mont St. Michel, which was built in 708 AD! Have a magical experience when you explore the area, especially later in the year when the island is surrounded by water.

We recommend going on a tour with an English-speaking guide who will make your experience more fun and show you the inside. You will learn a lot about the monastery's history.
