Notre-Dame-sous-Terre Chapel - Mont-Saint-Michel


The Carolingian church named Chapelle Notre-Dame-sous-Terre (Our Lady underground) was built around 966 by the first Benedictine monks at the very place of the oratory erected by Saint-Aubert in the early VIIIth century. By the way, was recently discovered behind the southern sanctuary a huge wall which is the most ancient known on the island. The chapel was hidden within the abbey's foundations and rediscovered in the late XIXth century. The church, separated by two pillars into two naves, has a length of 18 metres and a width of 8 metres.

Things to see: the altar and the vestiges of Saint-Aubert's sanctuary.
