History in France
France is a well known tourist destination, boasting many attractions that it has to offer. These include unforgettable landscapes, the Eiffel Tower, the lakes, the mountains, the French culture, the French cuisine, historical sites amongst many other attractions. The nation has a stable political climate and friendly people, and this also adds to the attraction that it has for tourists.
A possible hindrance would be the fact that French is their national language, and many of the people there do not understand English. This however should not deter you if you intend to visit there as there are many interpreters, and especially where tourist attractions are. Whether you intend to go and contemplate climbing the Eiffel tower, or would like to go water skating on the lakes in Marseille, the choice is yours.
If you would like to visit a great historical site that also has a religious aspect to it, I would suggest that you get to your Travel agent or Tour operator, and have them book you on a tour to the Castle of Saint Michele. This is located approximately two hour’s drive from Paris, and is a rocky cone shaped island that was built inside a granite rock. It has a parish church that dates back to the 15th century AD, towers, bulwarks, defensive towers around the entrance to protect it.
The first chapel at Castle of Saint Michele, was built in 708, and this was authorized by Albert after he had a dream of Archangel Michael, and hence the name Mont Saint-Michel. The Castle of Saint Michele was burnt down in 922, and was rebuilt in 1023 by Abbot Hildebert II. During the war in 1420, it was turned into a fort as they built reinforcements around it. In the 19th century, it was used as a prison. It burnt again in 1856, and was remade in 1874.
