St Michael's Mount in Cornwall by Flickr user philthomas

Three hundred and sixty-six meters off the shores of Cornwall, lies a small island in the bay. St. Michael’s Mount is often compared to Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France as it shares similar characteristics. The island contains a chapel, a medieval castle, and a small village. Its religious roots also make in an important stop for many pilgrims.
