Details

In an almost inaccessible situation, high on a granitic rock which does not measure less measured 6O top, the abbey of the Mount-Saint-Michel is one of the historical memories most curious and best preserves about the Middle Ages. It is about the year 709 qu ' Aubert, bishop of Avranches. on the rock an oratory builds initially which was gives has of the monks about Saint-beno?t, and whose richness acquired by piles pilgrimages made of it, in a few centuries that they habiterent it, one of the richest archaeological wonders than we had.

Frightening like a shelf and terible like a fortress, it shelters and seems to protect a crowd from constructions which are staged since the bottom of the rock to the abbey itself and which resists the centuries passing on their head without the effleurer, Voici initially its first wall of enclosure furnished with machicolation, turns and bastions, whose door gives on the strike; then wall of north, imposing by its height C 100 bills of quantities, its 30 buttresses and its length of 78 bills of quantities; the door of the castle defended by two grosses towers; the room of the knights and above the cloister, with its 120 posts supporting of the granite warheads. All these buildings superposee, and whose aspect is so majestic, are crowns by a superb basilica which one admires, with the lace of the gate, the cutting out of the warheads, the balustrades, the galleries, propping up and all the richnesses of architecture which have us laissees the centuries master keys, its cupola very out of granite is entouree practicable galleries or one can walk and enjoy an immense and splendid panorama.

The interior is neither less curious nor less rich person; the chorus of an ogival architecture is of an extreme boldness as well as the Romance nave and galleries. The restoration was made by it by an architect of talent, Mr. Corroyer.

All in all, this construction or rather this sublime pyramid of art, is of three distinct styles: Romance by bottom, it is Gothic by the medium and ogival by the top. Since the Sling it was used as prison of State, and it was only into 1864 that this incomparable work was returned to the religion.
