MSM TRAVELER MONT SAINT-MICHEL Located in Normandy, France, the island is home to ancient monasteries and religious culture. However, the main attraction of the historical landmark is the Mont Saint-Michel castle. The divine monastery was first built on dry land, many centuries ago. The small island, of only 240 acres of land, has a population of 44. Besides the spectacular architectural structure and magnificent details the castle holds, the most unique attraction is the tide that surrounds the castle. The castle offers the beauty of both land and sea; normally surrounded by sand, twice a day, the tide comes in and virtually separates the castle from the mainland to form its own little island. The tides come in quickly, measuring up to 46 feet high! For more information, please visit
