Mont Saint Michel by bencarrett

Located in Normandy, France. It is approximately one kilometre off the country’s northwestern coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. 100 hectares (247 acres) in size, the island has a population of 44 (2009).[1]
The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times and since the 8th century AD has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. The structural composition of the town exemplifies the feudal society that constructed it: on top, God, the abbey and monastery; below, the great halls; then stores and housing; and at the bottom, outside the walls, fishermen’s and farmers’ housing.

Mont Saint Michel – la grande rue
Petite pause nocturne pour les marchands du temple.
L’activité s’arrête quelques heures, le temps de réapprovisionner restaurants et magasins dans la rue principale qui mène à l’Abbaye.
