First a fortress, then a destination for religious pilgrims, Mont Saint Michel became a prison, a cause celebre and once again is a destination for those on pilgrimage--although today it is more often one of recreation and holiday than religious. A tiny cone of granite topped by a Romanesque abbey, sitting mockingly off the French coast, Mont Saint Michel has endured for 1,300 years, through wars and revolutions, to become one of the must-see destinations in Normandy.
