Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky island in Normandy, France. It is also called the Lee Mont St-Michel. The Mont is famous for the medieval Benedictine Abbey and church. The Mont was used primarily during the sixth and the seventh century as a monopoly of the Romano and British culture.

After the Romans left Britannia - today’s United Kingdom - in mid 5th century, many Britons crossed the channel due to fear of the increasing Anglo-Saxon influence in their former home country. This emigration is the reason why this French region is called Bretagne, in English “Brittany”- “little Britain”. The Monte Tombe served as a stronghold until it was later sacked by the Franks, which ended the era of Celtic cultural links between Britannia and the region Bretagne.

Today, a golden statue of Saint Michael can be seen at the top of the church spire, protecting and overlooking the entire island.
A lot of calculated importance was given to the mount in 933 and the mount was placed on the new Frontier with Brittany. It is also been said that Michael had asked Aubert to build the Mont and call it Mont Tombe. It was a talented Italian architect, who designed the beautiful Roman church of the abbey during the 11th century, and was very daringly placed on the top of the Mount. It has also been said that a lot of underground crypts and chapel0s were made to balance the weight and it is because of their support that the top structure is seen today. The entire tour takes almost a good amount of time, hence an interval of 35 to 45 minutes is given after tour and in one day time, almost 2 to 3 tours take place. One of the best parts to look here is the movement of the shifting tides.
