Mont-Saint-Michel is one of France’s most visited sites, and its unique construction on the cliffs above the Atlantic serves as a kind of national shrine for the country.
The famous abbey, perched atop 92m rocks, has had an eventful history, and even back in the Middle Ages was a destination for pilgrims and artists. In present times, at least pre-Covid, two million visitors still pay their respects, annually.
In this video, we learn more about the lore and origins of Mont-Saint-Michel, and how, on September 19, as part of this year’s European Heritage Days, DJ Michaël Canitrot set the old walls of the UNESCO World Heritage site pulsing with electronic beats and dynamic lighting.
