Classical Mont Saint Michel
Departing by bus from Saint Malo, proudly named the "Privateers' City", we are taken directly to the MONT SAINT MICHEL which "is to the ocean what the Pyramid of Cheops is to the desert"..."We must protect- by any means this masterpiece of the nature and the art." as Victor Hugo put it. We first discover the "Mont" surrounded by the bay, a fragile and natural setting of fauna and flora. We then walk through the narrow streets of the medieval village up to the Abbey. Once inside there will be a guided tour of the abbey which is an amazing achievement of passionate builders. Originated by a dream, the monastery was founded by the 10th century while the "Merveille" (the "Marvel") was constructed during the period 1203-1228 as one of the most imposing achievements of Gothic architecture. Today the Mont welcomes us as modern pilgrims following the century-old tradition. Time at leisure will be allowed for independent sightseeing and shopping. After our visit we drive back to Saint Malo and our yacht docked right under the city walls.
