The Centre des monuments nationaux 

The Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey

Located at the top of the Mount Saint-Michel in Normandy, France, the Abbey is a well-known place for tourists and pilgrims since the Middle Ages. This ancient monument offers  a diversity of architectural styles, as its construction began in the 10th century, continuing up to the 19th century restorations. It is a great example of the local Gothic style. In 1874 the site has been declared historical monument. Since 1979, the whole of Mount Saint-Michel is also a World Heritage UNESCO site.

Today the place is managed by the French public institution the Centre des monuments nationaux, which has opened the abbey and its 20 rooms to the public.
