The Mont St. Michel during the 8th century was called Mont Tombe as it was the first basic construction. As per the legendary stories, the archangel Michael once came to St. Aubert, bishop of Avranches asked him to make a church on this rocky island. However, Aubert kept ignoring all his talk until Michael with his finger, burned a hole in the Bishops’ Skull. In 708, October, during the 16th century, the Mont was finally dedicated to St. Michel

The origin of the Mont Saint Michel dates back to sixth and seventh century, when Armorican Gauls used the island as a stronghold of Breton culture and power. During this time the island was known as “Monte Tombe”.

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.

Mont Saint Michel got its current name in 709, when the bishop of Avranches, St. Aubert, ordered a small church to be built on the site. The legend says that the Archangel Saint Michael, leader of the armies of heaven, appeared before the bishop and instructed him to build the church on this rocky isle.

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.

An Italian architect, William de Volpiano, was chosen as building contractor for the mount in the 11th century. He designed the Roman church of the abbey, daringly placing the transept crossing at the top of the mount. Many underground crypts and chapels had to be built to compensate for this weight.
