Mont Saint Michel the only visitor in the most visited attraction in France

I went once again to visit the Mont Saint Michel, classed as a World Heritage Site, but this time it was a December 23rd after 7pm. It was a bit difficult to orientate yourself in the different parking spaces, all empty, with low lighting. After 19:00 the parking is free. I felt like I was in a Nomansland to find the shuttle to Mont Saint Michel. The shuttle was free, too, moreover, I was alone inside.

The mountain is better visited in the winter, and there, it is the relaxation, the discovery of the hidden alleys, the ramparts … in short, the true Mount. It was a visit in an atmosphere of the film in the name of the rose, mist and ambient light.

From fir trees to towers, from the drawbridge to the ramparts, kilometers of light bulbs illuminate the village, like a fairy-tale spectacle. Rain and illumination make the visit get an atmosphere of the film in the name of the rose, the mist and the ambient light.

A small geographical point in the first place: Mont-Saint-Michel is a commune in the department of Manche (Normandy) in Normandy, 41 inhabitants, and takes its name from the rocky island on which is erected the abbey of Mont Saint Michel.

I could not visit the famous Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel. The site was erected in 709 by the Bishop of Avranches in honor of the archangel Saint-Michel, and a community of Chanoines settled there. Over the centuries, they were replaced by Benedictines, and from 1975 until today, by a mixed community of monks and nuns, the Monastic Brotherhood of Jerusalem. The Abbey has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
