“Entrance back in time”
Review of Porte du Boulevard

Porte du Boulevard
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2017

The main portway into Mont St Michel is very impressive and it is nice that the organisers have made sure no cars park in front to mar the first sights. Although out of season the buses were already full and the entryway crowded as people stopped to get their bearings. High police presence was noted.

Thank Lynne A

Impressive and monumental entrance on the tiny rocky fortified island of Mont Saint-Michel. A perfect beginning of the visit.

Beautiful door serve as a entry to mont saint Michel proper. I'm not quite sure, but it looks like typical medieval construction, very picturesque.

This seems to be a meeting point for school groups, tour groups and friends who lost each other in the abbey! But the architecture is interesting and walking through that arch you know you have made it to Mont St Michel. All you have to do is walk to the top! But it is worth every step.

Great start to a great visit. The entrance was good before the Main Street of shops took over. There was security at the gate which is good but sad it has to be there.
