Mont St Michel

January 12, 2014

It's the castle from Tangled!

It was difficult to capture the ambiance of the narrow winding footpath and little shops lining the street once inside Mont St Michel, so I don’t really have very many if any good pictures of the interior. There are teeny tiny shops on each side of the street selling all sorts of expensive touristy knick knacks, along with thin tall homes though I think I remember being told that most people who work on the island do not live there. I think it would be pretty neat to be one of the few to live on such a fantastic island though I suppose it would be pretty bad if there was an emergency. As a child I can remember watching a version of The Scarlet Pimpernell with my mom, and Mont Saint Michel — getting onto or off of the island, I cannot remember which — being an integral plot point. My last thoughts about this beautiful island and the structures on it, is that I think the castle in Tangled looks like it was modeled after Mont Saint Michel,though with quite a bit wider avenue; a lovelier model they could not have chosen.
