The long history of Mont-saint Michel is thought to back to 708, when Aubert bishop of Avranches, hed a sanctuary built on Mont-Tombe in honour of the Archangerl. The mount soon became a major focus of pilgrimage. In the 10th century, the benedictines settled in the abbey, while a village grew up below its walls. By the 14th century it extended as far as the foot of the rock. An impregnable stronghold during the hundred years war, Mont saint Michel is also an example of military architecture. It’s ramparts and fortifications resisted all the english assaults ansd as a result the Mount became a symbol of national identity. Following the dissolution of religious community during the revolution and until 1863 the abbey was used as a prison. Classified as a historic monument in 1874, it underwent major restoration work. Mont Saint Michel has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1979.
