Bibendum
This centre devoted to the conservation of the manuscripts of Mont-St-Michel is home to several rooms that show the geographical, historical and cultural background related to the documents, the history of the Mount, the manufacture of medieval manuscripts, and the tools and materials used. The last but one room houses the originals of these masterpieces: chronicals and texts from Antiquity and the Middle Ages, treaties on Roman and Canonical law, botany, music, astronomy, medicine and the lives of saints. The visit ends with a history of printing.
