Le Mont Saint Michel

It’s a day trip from where I live, next time I would like to spend a night inside or nearby, be there early morning or late afternoon.

“In the 11th century, the Romanesque abbey church was founded over a set of crypts where the rock comes to an apex, and the first monastery buildings were built up against its north wall. … …

UNESCO has classed the Mont Saint-Michel as a world heritage in 1979 and this mecca of tourism welcomes more than 2,5 millions visitors a year.” The Tourism Office Mont Saint-Michel Normandie

« It took me some time to understand my nymphéas…..I grew them without thinking of painting them . You cannot become immersed in a landscape in a single day…And then, all of a sudden, I had the revelation of the enchantments of my pond….I took my palette . Since then, I have had almost no other model. »   Claude Monet talked about the nymphéas of  his Water garden in Giverny.
