PostSubject: Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy   13/11/2010, 10:46 pm

Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky island in Normandy, France. It is alsocalled the Lee Mont St-Michel. The Mont is famous for the medievalBenedictine Abbey and church. The Mont was used primarily during thesixth and the seventh century as a monopoly of the Romano and Britishculture. The Mont St. Michel during the 8th century was called MontTombe as it was the first basic construction. As per the legendarystories, the archangel Michael once came to St. Aubert, bishop ofAvranches asked him to make a church on this rocky island. However,Aubert kept ignoring all his talk until Michael with his finger, burneda hole in the Bishops’ Skull. In 708, October, during the 16th century,the Mont was finally dedicated to St. Michel.A lot of calculated importance was given to the mount in 933 and themount was placed on the new Frontier with Brittany. It is also beensaid that Michael had asked Aubert to build the Mont and call it MontTombe. It was a talented Italian architect, who designed the beautifulRoman church of the abbey during the 11th century, and was verydaringly placed on the top of the Mount. It has also been said that alot of underground crypts and chapel0s were made to balance the weightand it is because of their support that the top structure is seentoday. The entire tour takes almost a good amount of time, hence aninterval of 35 to 45 minutes is given after tour and in one day time,almost 2 to 3 tours take place. One of the best parts to look here isthe movement of the shifting tides.
