Mont Saint Michel was founded in 709 after  the bishop Aubert received the visit of the Archangel Saint Michael (708)  requiring of him to build a sanctuary for him. Aubert couldn’t believe it and waited so the archangel put his finger on  Aubert’s skull, made a hole in it  so he would realize that this was not a dream. Aubert sent two emissaries in Italy in Monte Gargano where the archangel had appeared in the 5th century.

A church was built in the 10th century, “Our lady underground”, which was consolidated in the 11th century in order to build the abbey church that we know today on top of this one.

Mont Saint michel has several layers of construction. in the 13th century , the “wonder” was added up. this 3 story building with the cloister and refectory.

The mount was attacked by the English during the hundred year war but never surrendered.

it became a jail in 1790 til 1863. more than 14 000 prisonners went through this jail.

in 1876, mont saint michel was classified historical monument and restored.

In 1979, it was added up on the list of the Unesco World Heritage.
