It is the "Mont-Saint-Michel", in the far north of the country on an island in front of Normandy. This unique monastery island is not only a place of worship, but also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Michaelerkirche (1st, Michaelerplatz; holy Michael, formerly Hofpfarr- und Barnabitenkirche [the name Michaeler refers to the Barnabites who worked at the church from 1626-1923]). The church was founded in the first half of the 13th century as the second parish church (after St. Stephen); the alleged date of foundation in 1221 can only be found in a fictitious copy of a document from the 18th century, the completion before 1252.
