About Mont St. Michel and Dinan
Along the river Rance, just a few miles from St. Malo, is the preserved medieval village of Dinan. As a river town, the village was an important focus of trade in the Middle Ages. Rather than along the river banks and in the flats, village houses and shops climb high up into the hills, making the town ready to defend in case of attack - be it by pirates or invaders.
Mont Saint Michel
Medieval monk Aubert (later the sainted bishop of Avranches) was visited by a seemingly impossible vision from archangel Michael, instructing him to build a monastery atop a rock cut off by tides twice a day. Over many centuries, his vision was made reality, and Mont St. Michel is now the second-most-visited site in France, after the Eiffel Tower.
