Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France

Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky island in Normandy, France. It is also called the Lee Mont St-Michel. The Mont is famous for the medieval Benedictine Abbey and church. The Mont was used primarily during the sixth and the seventh century as a monopoly of the Romano and British culture. The Mont St. Michel during the 8th century was called Mont Tombe as it was the first basic construction. As per the legendary stories, the archangel Michael once came to St. Aubert, bishop of Avranches asked him to make a church on this rocky island. However, Aubert kept ignoring all his talk until Michael with his finger, burned a hole in the Bishops’ Skull. In 708, October, during the 16th century, the Mont was finally dedicated to St. Michel.
