According to a legend Archangel Michael gave instruction to build a a church on this island, which is now named after him.
Five centuries later, during the 100 Years’ War between England and France, the town of Mont Saint-Michel was threatened. It was the most important town of Normandy, which at that time was a wealthy part of France. It was also the only place in Normandy the English hadn’t captured yet. During this invasion of France the English besieged Mont Saint-Michel several times.
However, the French assigned Betrand du Guesclin, hero of France in making, to defend Mont Saint-Michel, which he did succesfully. The English did not manage to captured it. Nowadays you can visit the temporary house of Betrand du Guesclin.

We also have a blog. On it you will find a story about 5 smaller cities in the UK.
When people from outside the UK visit England most people go to London. Of course this is a great city to visit. There is a lot to see and do and when it’s your first time in this fascinating country I can definitely recommend it. You can easily spend a week in “the Big Smoke” and still only see a few things. Museums, theaters, parks, nightlife. There is plenty to do for everyone. I wrote about it in a previous story on our blog.
