At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A sacred place of mystery and legends.

On the border between Brittany and Normandy, between Cancale and Granville, the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is a fascinating place, a land of history and legend, shaped over the millennia by the hidden forces of nature. Discovering Mont Saint-Michel starts from afar, with the striking silhouette of the Benedictine Abbey, a place of Christian pilgrimage, perched on a rock standing out above the bay. This bay has some of the highest and most powerful tides in Europe.

The abbey, built from the 10th century and modified over the centuries, is marked by each chapter in history and offers a comprehensive overview of almost every style of religious architecture during the Middle Ages. Its choir is of flamboyant Gothic style while its crypt and nave are both Romanesque.

The village that developed below, enclosed between the walls, adds a picturesque note to this key monument, classed, alongside the whole bay of Mont Saint-Michel, as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
