Priory of Mont-Saint-Michel: developing the welcoming services for pilgrims and visitors

7 November 2023

The Priory of Mont-Saint-Michel is a unique Norman medieval complex that has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1937.
Every year since 2014, thanks to the support of donors and patrons, the Sanctuary has been working to bring back to life these buildings that have been home to so many pilgrims since the Middle Ages.
The priority is to safeguard and restore this heritage as part of a chain of transmission of the thousand-year-old history of Mont-Saint-Michel to share it with as many people as possible. In this way, the restored Priory is gradually regaining its full role as a place for welcoming visitors.
At the end of 2022, the 5th and final heritage project began, to provide a suitable welcome for the ever-increasing numbers of hikers and pilgrims on their way to the Mont.
