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.

  • Nice walk, but allow boots to not ruin his socks. The chapel seems closed to the public but you can see inside through the door.

  • The visit to this mountain is an odd experience of history and culture. You feel living in another time, the Chapel is very beautiful inside.

  • 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.

  • Tiny little chapel hidden on the least accessible side of the island. You can get here only with low tide
  • You can almost feel the place and how it was to live there.
  • A beautiful chapel!
