Saint Michel’s Mont

St. Michael’s Mount

A mount situated off the north coast of Brittany, France.

This hill on the tidal flats was once the haunt of a particularly repulsive giant. After slaying him, Arthur commanded Howell to build the famous church of Saint Michael’s Mount. This was early in Arthur’s reign, as he was setting out to conquer the Emperor of Rome.

Do not confuse with Saint Michael’s Mount, Cornwall, a similar spot east of Penzance on the south Cornish coast.
