The Mont

View 2007 California & France on alexchan's travel map.

Aaah! The famous fortified monastery built on a rock in Normandy [Normandy-travel-guide-1313157]. Before modernisation, it could only be accessed during low tide.

But now, hordes of tourist descend upon it (or maybe ascend) at all times ... grossly over-touristed for my tastes with shops, cafes etc. But still pretty.

What you see today is a mix of buildings dating from the 11th Century to the 20th.
