Description

This magnificent abbey stands atop a rocky islet in the gulf of Saint-Malo, on the northwestern coast of France. The abbey started as a small chapel dedicated to the Archangel Michael, in the early 8th century, and took around 900 years to evolve into its present state. In 1979, it was designated a World Cultural Heritage Site. As the result of continuous reconstructions in Romanesque and Gothic styles, the whole islet has the appearance of a single, huge edifice. The abbey spire sits atop the islet’s peak, reaching a height of approximately 150 meters above the sea.
