One of the most idyllic of French Cathedrals was built on the coast of France in Normandy. Over two million visitors tour this beautiful cathedral every year. Less than 50 full-time residents call this small island community home. It stands as an engineering marvel and a reminder of simpler and more reflective times past. Enjoy a video tour of this iconic place, named in honor of St. Michael the Archangel, whose likeness stands at the pinnacle of the spire of this magnificent Cathedral. A small abbey on the island is home to several religious men and women who preserve the spiritual heritage of the Mont.
