Merveille - Mont-Saint-Michel


Since the end of the XVIIth century, the Merveille (marvel) has designated the place where the monks lived. The monastery was built on Phillipe-Auguste's order between 1212 and 1228. It is part of the gothic side of the Mont-Saint-Michel, the northern side. The edifice has 3 storeys and is divided into 2 parts. The eastern part comprises three halls: the Aumônerie (almonry) where the poor and the pilgrims were taken care of, the Salle des Hôtes (Hall of the Guests) dedicated to the hosting of noble people and high-ranked knights and finally the Réfectoire des moines (monks' refectory). The western part of the edifice also comprises 3 halls: the Cellier (cellar) on the groundfloor where were stored the food, the Scriptorium in which worked the monks and the Cloître (cloister).
