Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Basse-Normandie / Manche / Mont-Saint-Michel / Chapelle Saint-Aubert
Set atop a rocky outcropping protruding from the main island of Mont Saint Michel, Chapelle Saint-Aubert owes its existence to a supposedly sacred rock. Built during the early 8th century, the small chapel serves as a haven from the bustle of the rest of the island. Make your way to the chapel, constructed in unassuming fashion out of stone, by traversing the set of steps connecting it to the rest of the island. Enter the building and admire its simple interior, featuring a small altar and a few arched windows. Be sure to bring your camera when you visit, as at low tide the view of the chapel from a distance will give you appreciation for how well it has survived over the centuries against the ravages of the surrounding ocean.

The chapel sits just outside of the fortification walls of Mont Saint Michel. I came upon it while walking around the bay during low tide. It sits to the left of the main entry.
