About Mont St. Michel and Dinan
Along the river Rance, just a few miles from St. Malo, is the preserved medieval village of Dinan. As a river town, the village was an important focus of trade in the Middle Ages. Rather than along the river banks and in the flats, village houses and shops climb high up into the hills, making the town ready to defend in case of attack – be it by pirates or invaders.
About Mont Saint Michel
See each stop plotted on a larger map: Mont St. Michel Tour Map
Medieval monk Aubert (later the sainted bishop of Avranches) was visited by a seemingly impossible vision from archangel Michael, instructing him to build a monastery atop a rock cut off by tides twice a day. Over many centuries his vision was made reality, and the result, Mont St. Michel, is now the second-most-visited site in France, after the Eiffel Tower.
