Wait is this where the Witcher 3 Expansion takes place??
Amazing, straight out of fantasy. FYI it was a much more modest abbey [until the 17th century](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont-Saint-Michel#Development)
Amazing place, amazing view, both with and without high tide, it’s a place you really love while you are there
Ill never get sick of seeing this castle. What an amazing spot.
I wonder how much they spend reinforcing the foundations
Is this on a natural rock formation or was it built up from flat ground?
[I was there again last November.]( https://imgur.com/3FMey1d.jpg )
[The view](https://imgur.com/XR7iCDc.jpg) they don’t tell you about. 😛
Make sure you try the [hard cider,]( https://imgur.com/iSo6oVL.jpg ) and the omelets at the top. The [prison museum]( https://imgur.com/aK6FBwQ.jpg) there is really interesting as well.
If anyone wants to know, there’s a very similar place in Cornwall, UK that I’ve come to call the poor man’s Mont Saint-Michel. It’s actually called [Saint Michael’s Mount](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Michael's_Mount) (intentional?) and it’s where the legend of Jack the Giant Killer comes from. Pretty interesting. Also beautiful at high & low tide!
Now the real question is : is it breton or norman?
