A nice break!
While discovering the Mont Saint-Michel, we took a small break from the touristic area and visited Église Saint-Pierre. Not that we needed a break, however continuously being
surrounded by herds of tourists can fell exhausting.
The entire island, if you will, is like a labyrinth and maze to be discovered. It's truly impressive to see the work of art and discover all areas. As we wandered off the beaten path we discovered a small yet charming church called Saint-Pierre. We first discovered the cemetery, which led us to the church.
It doesn't appear to be a church from outside as the structure blends in with the surrounding homes. Looking at the building, the only indication suggesting it's a church was the statue of Joan of Arc. Once inside, Église Saint-Pierre's structure is very similar if not identical to the main Abbey. The main arches display a carefully calculated brick and mortar separation. In contrast with the Abbey, Église Saint-Pierre is decorated inside. That is because m
asses are held here.
We recommend you visit this charming church. We spent one and a half days on the island and feel like there is so much more to discover.
