From the legend to the construction


One of the most visited sites in the world, this abbey built from the 10th century onwards is located on a rocky island which has been separated from the continent for centuries. Built at the time of the dukes of Normandy, it was conquered by the french king in 1204 and mostly rebuilt in the 13th century. These new additions were called " the marvel". Used by the benedictine monks who wrote famous manuscripts, it became an intense cultural and spiritual center, visited by different kings and bishops of the time. The visit of the abbey allows us to admire the skill of the architects of the 13th century as well as the outstanding view on the bay at low or high tide. Also concieved as a fortress to defend it against the Eglish during the hundred years war, you'll be able to walk on the remparts on the way down to the village crowded all year long. An unforgettable experience in an unique site.
