Magnificent Mont Saint-Michel

Perched atop of a small tidal island in northwestern France, Mont Saint-Michel emerges slowly through the fog, like something out of a Harry Potter book.  The Archangel Michael is said to have requested that the first church be built on the site in the year 709, and various sections have been added over the centuries to create the impressive structure that exists today.  The current abbey incorporates both Romanesque and Gothic styles of architecture.  Over time, it has been utilized as a place of worship, a tactical stronghold, and even a prison.

Students on our French Language Immersion Program will visit Mont Saint-Michel during the summer.  Here are a few photos to give you a better idea of this amazing national monument!
