New on 500px : The old chapel by bzh88 by bzh88

The Mont Saint-Michel is the culmination of the Monts d’Arrée in Brittany (396 m. Due to its small chapel). It is part of an ancient chain of volcanoes. In good weather, there is a magnificent view!
The surrounding landscape has even served as the backdrop to the film “Planet of the Apes”!
The small chapel that overcomes the Mount was built in 1672, on the ruins of an ancient Celtic temple. It is dedicated to St Michael the Archangel, which protects the site of the dragon (perhaps the volcano).

Le Mont Saint-Michel est le point culminant des Monts d’Arrée en Bretagne (396 m. grâce à sa petite chapelle). Il fait partie d’une ancienne chaîne de volcans. Par beau temps, on découvre un panorama magnifique!
Le paysage environnant a même servi de décor au film “la Planète des Singes” !
La petite chapelle qui surmonte le mont a été construite en 1672, sur les ruines d’un ancien temple celte. Elle est dédiée à l’Archange St-Michel qui protège le site du dragon ( peut-être le volcan).
