Mount San Michel is a medieval town called Avranches. The monastery, which gives the place it's name was fortified in the thirteenth century, with three cities whose fortifications and development are remarkable: Aigues Mortes (1270-1276), Carcassone, and Avignon (1309-1377). These fortified cities, called "bastides" marked the frontier of the kingdom at the end of the Middle Ages. More than 300 were built in France alone, between 1220 and 1350.

Mont-Saint-Michel and its Bay, France. Perched on a rocky islet in the midst of vast sandbanks exposed to powerful tides between Normandy and Brittany stand the 'Wonder of the West', a Gothic-style Benedictine abbey dedicated to the archangel St Michael, and the village that grew up in the shadow of its great walls.
