St Michael's Mount

No, this is not Mont-Saint-Michel. This is its English sister. St Michael's Mount is a small tidal island in Mount's Bay, Cornwall. The island is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water. During high water small boats ferry visitors to the island.

A small castle sits on top of the rock. It was originally a monastery, later it was transformed into a Country House. At the bottom of the rock you can visits quite unusual subtropical gardens and a small harbor.
