Nice outpost

It's a nice tower, part of walls surrounding mont saint Michel. Picture perfect, but not much to do apart from taking few photos and going someplace else.

Well worth the visit and the effort getting to this site. On a clear day the views are excellent, especially when the tide's out.

As you stroll the fortified wall there are a series of tours worth exploring. They are best for picturesque seascapes and landscapes beyond.

This is a nice quick pit stop. Nice view of the tide and space around this mount. Apart from that, there is nothing else to do when the ground is mushy. Enjoy the stone masonry. This spot isn't that popular but if you want a quiet escape from the crowd, it might serve your purpose.

Everywhere on Mont St. Michel seems to offer very nice photo opportunities. Gabriel is lower down and is thus much more readily reached. Has nice vistas of the sands surrounding the Mont. Enjoy....

In searching for the best spot during your photo session of Mont-Saint-Michel, don’t forget to look around and admire the impressive work all around you. The effort and determination to build this place is really impressive.

All the towers are stunning! Some do offer better views, but while there do take the time to admire all the work involved in creating such a masterpiece. We were totally in awe of Mont St-Michel.

This is certainly not one of my favorite attractions, I saw it more or less closely, it is a simple lookout tower located in a low area and outside of the fortress of Mont Saint Michel. From here you have a decent view, but nothing compared to the terrace at the top.
