Chapelle Saint-Aubert, 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.

  • An old Romanesque church closed. Tiny and which dates from the XII. Go there at night, 7: 00, when you know that there is the tidal bore, lets you hear in the distance the sound of the tidal bore. A dull, incessant, noise that slowly then abruptly calls to you. Everyone left impressed every time, young or old.

  • Small and modest church away from the tourist circuits. Austere exterior and modest inside. The access is free.

  • After the Mont Saint-Michel Abbey internal tour, walk the walls and found. It is seen from the top, overhanging the sea of small stone buildings. It seems to enshrine the Auber Bishop Chapel. I can't go at low tide only. Main street grandly, can be found around the walls around from a position on the other side, so.

  • Feels like every corner of the abbey hides a secret, one of them is this little Chapelle and yes like everybody says you can only access when the tide is gone. So beware! But worth explore it.
  • Still under further renovation and restoration but beautiful view nevertheless
  • Sooooooooo beautiful place
  • Tiny little chapel hidden on the least accessible side of the island. You can get here only with low tide
  • Cool and spooky
