Mount Saint Michel, France



  

   The castle of Mont Saint-Michel is located on Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy, in the department of Manche. A historical monument, the site appears since 1979 on the World Heritage List of UNESCO and is managed by the Center of National Monuments. It is often compared to the seven wonders of the world. 

   Unlike other castles in France which started in "career" playing the role of defensive structures or sites dedicated to art, Mont St. Michel was built to serve religious purposes, namely as a monastery. Today, the castle attracts four million visitors per year, far more than most French castles.
