Brittany is the westernmost region of France. It is characterized by jagged, cliffed, wild coast with high tides and a culture separate from the rest of the country. One of the most important French monuments, Mont Saint-Michele, is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.
The abbey on the tidal island of Mont Saint-Michele is located on the border between Brittany and Normandy. The huge monastery built on the rocks for several hundred years is inscribed on the UNESCO list. A dyke leads to it, flooded at certain times of the day by high tide.
The region is known primarily for its wonderful coast. Cliffs, jagged shoreline, small islets and beaches that are suitable not only for sunbathing, but also for windsurfing cause that every year crowds of French rest here.
Inland, you can find prehistoric remains. There are several complexes of dolmens, megalithic tombs and stone circles, and the most famous of them are menhirs in Carnac, Megaliths in Locmariaquer or the neolithic mausoleum of Cairin de Bernenek.
Brittany is also known for its delicious cuisine, which is dominated by seafood and lamb. It is a region with a rich, specific culture, strongly associated with Celtic roots. The old Breton language has been preserved here, and a large part of the population is bilingual
