Once one has climbed the never ending steps to the top, with the sound of the ever present seagulls, one is rewarded with the magnificent views from the Terrace. Even though there were visitors everywhere, sometimes we found ourselves alone. Some of the flag stones...More

When climbing the various parts of the Mont Saint Michel, you get lots of magnificent views. This is one of the most spectacular. You really feel the mighty ocean and seashore from this terrace.

This Terrasse is a bit bigger and has enough space for a little break while watching the tide. To get there you have to climb various stairs, so be prepared.
