Mont Saint-Michel- Most Famous Palace- France

The beautiful region of Normandy France has many sites of interest: the Bayeux Tapestry, Rhone Cathedral, and the D-Day beaches, among others. Of all Normandy’s outstanding sights, Mont St Michel—a UNESCO world heritage site—is the most famous. Its pyramid-like outline has become famous the world .Mount Saint-Michel is located on a tidal island in Normandy, France. It is home to the unusual Benedictine Abbey and steeple church (built between the 11th and 16th centuries), daringly placed at the top of the mount. Many underground crypts and chapels had to be built to compensate for this weight. The tides in the area can vary greatly, at roughly 14 meters between high and low water marks.
