02 The Mont-Saint-MichelMont-Saint-Michel is one of the most visited places in France. It is also a place of controversy, due to the silting of the bay. No doubt that human work has accelerated it, but the fact remains that even without it, the bay is silting up naturally, because of its geography and tidal power. When you see the size of the polder that line the bay and distance from the sea of some neighboring villages in the Middle Ages were ports .... Of course, if the Mont-Saint-Michel was in the middle of the field, it would be much less touristy. While extensive work was undertaken to make him an insular character, with access-bridge that will tide. For now it's ugly and noisy. A shuttle system was set up so that car went even park at the foot of Mount as before. Now that's pretty good. But given the distance between the car park at Disneyland and the departure of the shuttle, please make the walk at least one way.
Once past the walls, it is a medieval décor awaits you. Go early to get a few people, then it's unbearable. Before arriving at the abbey, we must walk in front of the shops. It is ultimately less unbearable than I remembered, and then from the middle ages, there were already shopping ...
See beating eggs for omelettes the famous Mère Poulard. All this is done in rhythm. It lacks a piano and bass. If you wish to eat, you have to spending a penny. In fact everything is expensive on the Mount.
I will not say much about the abbey and the Wonder. All guides will do much better. Can we point out is that this abbey is built on a rocky outcrop without flat base. Over the centuries, there have been many collapses. To avoid them, we had to build a whole set of columns, retaining walls that give this aspect peculiar to Mont-Saint-Michel. This also helps to shield against the elements. To enjoy and understand, we have to an escorted tour.Mont-Saint-Michel, this is a place not to be missed. And this is by far his best that are points of view.
