Long Description:
Mont Saint-Michel is most recognisable landmarks in France.

When you come to the Mont Saint-Michel island you probably notice a very steep tower. On the top this tower is situated a statue of Archangel Michael (visit link) .

According to legend, the Archangel Michael appeared in 708 to St. Aubert, the bishop of Avranches, and instructed him to build a church on the rocky islet. Aubert repeatedly ignored the angel's instruction until Michael burned a hole in the bishop's skull with his finger.
