Normandy and Brittany < >
A trio of amazing cities where history meets the present. Not far from St. Malo lies a Unesco World Heritage site, the old monastery of the Mont Saint Michel is a must see. It is on its own island, separated by the daily tides. In the past it could not be accessed at high tide; now there is a special parking lot and you can walk the rest of the way. When you enter the huge old city doors you will be fronted with tiny little streets that wave their way up to the monastery. It’s an accomplishment to make it to the top of the village. The reward – a breathtaking panoramic view of the coastal villages. If you have a chance, don’t miss out on the famous omelets of the “Mere Poularde” or the local cookies “sables de Mont Saint Michel”. On your way to St. malo from the Mont Saint Michel, stop in a place called Cancales. If you are an oyster fanatic, Cancale has some of the freshest oysters in all of Europe. The walled city of St. Malo is where Jacques Cartier left with his boat to discover Canada. His original house is still in the area, as is a statue of him.
