20. Mont Saint-Michel
Mont Saint-Michel is one of the most symbolic monuments in the French landscape. Each year, more than three million people jostle to visit Mont Saint-Michel, a magnificent medieval setting. Everyone is fascinated by this proudly standing abbey, protected by its ramparts. Nowadays, only 44 people live there permanently, which allows this site to be so well preserved. The Mont Saint Michel is certainly one of the most popular tourist attractions in France, and has been listed as a World Heritage SiteUNESCO in 1979. It is the third most visited tourist site in France after the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles.
