Normandy: Mont Saint Michel & the landing beach 2021

On the saddle to discover the Normandy of the Vikings, the first dukes, its medieval abbeys and the famous landing beach! And then again… .. Mont-Saint-Michel, theater of the greatest tides in continental Europe. French  people call it “la vague”, you see it coming from afar, slow but inexorable to cover the beach and the bay from which rises the rocky islet. Il Mont and its bay have been classified in the Unesco world heritage since 1979.
