This tower was build during the war with the English. Many towers were build around the mount to protect the inhabitants. In fact the mount was never captured...
In a dry season you can walk around the mount up to this tower...
You can check more closely than from the distance the statue of St.Michel that is on the very top of the spire.
I had to include this picture of La Poste near the entrance. I loved the old stones and the bright red paint and the flowers. Picturesque.
Walking along this narrow street at nite is a good thing to do, and after get tired, just sit one of the many resto here....
Stayed at Motel Vert in Mont Saint Michel. A short walk to the causeway, you will have a terrific view of Mont St. Michel
This view to die for is truly a view to die for as many people have lost their lives in the trecherous waters surrounding the Mont. Walk there with care. Better yet, look but stay on solid ground!
The Entrance takes you into the town that was built around the Mont. You will see the picturesque medieval town as you trek up the hill to the Abbey.
There were other large windows in the church that were imposing, but also too dark for a good picture It's still worth walking to the left of the nave to see them.
I remember making my way up the intricate winding streets to see the great view.
Here there are many restaurants, museums and souvenir shops.
