St Michael’s Mount, Marazion, Cornwall

Step foot in a land where giants once walked. Legend says that a mythical giant named Cormoran once lived on the Mount, and he used to wade ashore and steal cows and sheep from the villagers to feed his gargantuan appetite.
One night, a local boy called Jack rowed out to the island and dug a deep pit while the giant was asleep. As the sun rose, Jack blew a horn to wake the angry giant who staggered down from the summit and – blinded by the sunlight – fell into the pit and died.
Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims over the ages who have looked out over the rocky ledge on the western side of the island. It was here – where an ancient stone chair stands at the entrance to the castle – that according to legend, a vision of the Archangel St Michael appeared to some fishermen in the year 495. A place drenched in spiritual energy and religious roots, St Michael’s Mount has been an important pilgrimage destination throughout the ages.

I can’t seem to find the name of this rock but looks like a face to me :)
