Watching the 2013 Tour de France over the past few weeks brought memories of my day at
Mont Saint-Michel wishing I had known beforehand what the cyclists knew of the bitterly cold
cross winds. Regardless of the unexpected cold winds, it was a day I looked forward to and
will never forget.
The Gothic-style Benedictine Abbey dedicated to the Archangel St Michael, and the village
below were built between the 11th and 16th centuries. on a rocky islet in the midst of a large
area of sandbanks which are exposed to the powerful tides between Normandy and Brittany.
Over three million people visit the technical and artistic masterpiece of Mont Saint-Michel
each year. It is one of the most recognisable landmarks of France and is included in the
UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites as well as being a listed French Monument Historique.
