For centuries now, Mont-Saint-Michel has stood in the middle of a vast bay off the French coast of Normandy swept by the highest tides in Europe. It has become a symbol of resistance to the test of time. With a yearly turnout of over 2.5 million tourists, and 1.2 visitors at the Abbey itself, the Mont-Saint-Michel is today the third most visited French cultural site after Palace of Versailles and the Eiffel Tower. Together with its bay, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979. From the granite rock where the Romanesque-style Benedictine abbey was first erected to the Gothic “Merveille” and spire dedicated to Archangel Michael, down to its recent overhaul to regain its island quality, 1,300 years of architectural feats and daring challenges are recalled in Denis Sneg's film.
