Chapelle Saint-Aubert, Mont-Saint-Michel

4.1
#8 of 29 in Things to do in Mont-Saint-Michel
Set atop a rocky outcropping protruding from the main island of Mont Saint Michel, Chapelle Saint-Aubert owes its existence to a supposedly sacred rock. Built during the early 8th century, the small chapel serves as a haven from the bustle of the rest of the island. Make your way to the chapel, constructed in unassuming fashion out of stone, by traversing the set of steps connecting it to the rest of the island. Enter the building and admire its simple interior, featuring a small altar and a few arched windows. Be sure to bring your camera when you visit, as at low tide the view of the chapel from a distance will give you appreciation for how well it has survived over the centuries against the ravages of the surrounding ocean.

    A stroll at night around Mount leads you to this Chapel. If you have a fold of Sun, you will be in the right place at the right time to feel the power of the mount and the Bay.

    But where is this Chapel? Mont St Michel that is deserved, it is discovered and not just amount to the wonder, by making a picture of eggs of the mother Poulard drummers and buying a ball snow made in China. To see the chapel along the foot of the ramparts on the right of the main entrance and you will find it on the back. Boots made of rubber or barefoot walk around the walls and you will have accomplished what only can tourists take the time to do. Good stay.

    Tiny little chapel hidden on the least accessible side of the island. You can get here only with low tide
