A long distance trail with a spiritual theme? Curious. And yet this what you find with the pilgrim's way to Mont-Saint-Michel which passes through the Coëvrons.
From Saint-Pierre-sur-Orthe to the hamlet of Montaigu passing near Bais and Sainte-Gemmes-le-Robert, this historic route takes you on a pilgrimage from village to village, following the roads, taking the old sunken lanes through the countryside, stopping at a village church chevet. Stone pilgrims' crosses, chapels, hermitages and solitary fountains are dotted along this unusual trail where the landscape is ever-changing. For those who like to hike, you must do a guided across the bay. Yes you need a guide, the tides are very pronounced and people regularly drown trekking on their own.A stunning, unforgettable, fairytale masterpiece, Mont St Michel is a granite outcrop in the bay of St Michel, which has been a religious site since the 8th Century and which, since the 11th has had an Abbey perched on top. Cut off from the mainland at high tide until comparatively recently, there is now a causeway making access easier
