Mont St. Michel

Monday was our tour to the Abbey at Mount St. Michel's. This famous religious landmark is built on a granite outcrop just offshore. Started in the 700's the construction  has continued right up to the late 1800's. The Abbey and the small village alongside it are surrounded by water every day when the massive tide comes in, it is reached by a causeway and bridge. Our tour took us up to the top and through the many chapels , sanctuaries and rooms making up the complex structure.
