Mont Saint-Michel France
Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy
Rising up from vast sandbanks and powerful tides, the rocky island of Mont Saint-Michel gives off an otherworldly appearance in its position off France’s northwestern coast in Normandy. A small medieval village, complete with winding streets and tiny houses, sits on the island, but the crown jewel is undoubtedly the Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. The incredibly abbey was build in 708 A.D., and was the inspiration behind the castle in Disney’s Tangled.
