Le Mont Saint-Michel, France

I've been looking for a postcard of Le Mont Saint-Michel for ages. I finally got lucky this summer - and the card has a gorgeous Europa stamp on as well which matches this card perfectly as one of the places it shows is Le Mont Saint-Michel! :)

Le Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky tidal island and a commune in Normandy, France. It is located approximately one kilometre off the country's north-western coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. The population of the island is 44, as of 2009. The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times, and since the 8th century AD been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. The Mont-Saint-Michel and its bay are part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
