Photo for Mont St. Michel: spiral staircases, crypts, and spectacular views

If you ever find yourself in Normandy, visiting the abbey at Mont St. Michel is a must. Now a World Heritage site, this abbey was constructed by monks on a rock only accessible at low tide. With a statue of Saint Michel on the signature spire rising into the sky, the abbey certainly accomplishes its intended goal of placing the monks closer to God. Once you climb the stairs and pay the entrance fee (which is only around 4 euros for students,) you can easily navigate the abbey and experience its amazing display of Gothic architecture. Complete with spiral staircases, crypts, and spectacular views, you can see where the monks lived and worked. If it's a nice day, you can also venture on a little walk on the sands surrounding the rock!
