"Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy, France"
J Richard Gaskill, MD
This towering medieval abbey, located on a rocky outcropping on the Normandy coast, is one of France's greatest tourist attractions. A Benedictine monastery was first established here in 966 CE. During the following centuries, it has undergone many additions and restorations. It even served as a prison during the French Revolution. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Dr Gaskill is a retired Otolaryngologist from the Santa Clara Medical Center in CA.
