Points of Interests and Landmarks
Originally called Mont-Tombe, the island became known as Mont-Saint-Michel in the 8th century due to a vision of the bishop of Avranches. After that, the site turned into a pilgrimage site and in 966a Benedictine abbey was built. The island was fortified in 1256 and resisted the wars in 1337 and 1562. Then the site became a state prison under Napoleon I (reigned 1804–14/15) and remained a prison until 1863. In 1874, it was classified as a historic monument and restored.
