France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Mont St-Michel Pilgrimages, France
The majority of visitors to Mont St-Michel are tourists, but some still consider it a pilgrimage site.




Catholic pilgrims have been coming to Mont St-Michel for centuries.

Along with Rome and Santiago de Compostelo in Spain, Mont St-Michel was a major pilgrimage site in the Middle Ages.

Today the vast majority of visitors are tourists, but some still make the pilgrimage. A Pilgrimage Office, the Maison du Pélérin, near the top of the Grande Rue, welcomes pilgrims.

Masses are held at both the Abbey and the Église St-Pierre most days of the week. The Tourist Office can provide specific times of services.

Whether you're there for a pilgrimage or not, you can't help being moved by this beautiful and mysterious place.
