The gate is one of the first things that you see before entering the city. It looks like a drawbridge but not sure if it actually lifts up. There is a gated bit that comes down which might close it off but it was open the entire time we were there. There is also an interesting carving above the gate. It is a nice area to start the experience.

Mont Saint Michel is an amazingly beautiful place to visit! The people in the town are very friendly as well. The only problem my wife and I experienced was the insane number of tourists who decided that it was a good idea to bring all of their newborn infants in baby strollers. The narrow hallways within the medeival castle become quite difficult to navigate with all of the inconsiderate parents blocking the thoroughfare. The castle is no place for baby strollers and, in my opinion, should not be permitted within the structure itself.

La Porte du Roy is the second gate into the fortified town. The remnants of a draw bridge remain, as does a defensive iron gate that could be lowered to prevent entrance. It is an interesting feature worth noting during a visit to MSM.

you will walk right thru this and maybe not even take time to notice that you are walking on a drawbridge. the wood floor beneath your feet is actually the door that would have closed to shut off the Village from invaders. take time to look at the mechanism that is still present and I assume to be functional.

I believe that this attraction is the infamous gift shop at the entrance of the fortress of Mont Saint Michel. Frankly, apart from some small thing it did not seem like a noteworthy attraction in a place like Mont Saint Michel. Since this is a medieval place as a result you will find swords, armor, porcelain and precious things in today's value, but also more simply magnets and items for your home, all of them obviously depicting this magnificent fortress.

I was very excited to arrive as this has been a destination on my list for many years, however, I don't know if the numbers of people entering is controlled and I found it incredibly cramped in this area and others within the walls.

Quite impressive entrance as you walk onto the Mont. If you come very early in the morning (we did to see the sun & tide rise) you can have this entrance all to yourself :). We left the Mont after 9, came back later and there were 100 people all around. If you want the best sights - getting here early is the best.

We found this general area a very grand like entrance. Its feel transports you back in time with a lot more to follow as you enter the site.

Another gate towards the Abbey, you will likely pass through here at some point on your way up on your pilgrimage. The gate was known as the kings gates and you can tell from the design and feel that it certainly retains that medieval feel. Again, spend 5 minutes here, take a few photos and move onto the abbey.

This gate is well preserved and is a real link to the past, a lot of the gates to ancient cities have not survived to this day or have been altered over time. It is cool to see the gate and gives you a good feel for the towns history.
