Do you know about Mont Dol ?
North from Dol de Bretagne stands the Mont Dol . It is a hill about 65 where lies a pretty village of 1100 people .
The surrounding of the Mont Dol is extremely flat and provide a beautiful view when you are on the top of the hill . On the side of the hill stands the small chapel Saint – Michel and next to it the Tour Notre Dame which is topped by a statue of the Virgin Mary . From that spot you can get excellent views over the surrounding .
Mont Dol was also surrounded by sea in the 6th century like the Mont Saint – Michel .
- Fun fact: The cult takes its origins on the Mont-Dol but moved to the Mont Saint-Michel when the sea has a withdraw around year 708!
In the center of Mont Dol stands “ L’Eglise Saint-Pierre ”, beautiful church presenting paintings Middle Age old. You better go inside that church to see wonderful drawing on the wall !
If you like sport then you should try Rock climbing in Mont Dol !! Don’t be afraid even if you have never tried it . You can do with your kids as well .
Go on a walk to the Mont-Dol at the end of the afternoon and enjoy the sunset with the view of Mont Saint Michel bay !
