Mont Saint-Michel’s angel restored

May 27, 2016

The statue of St. Michael the Archangel atop the famed monastery of Mont Saint-Michel has been regilded and restored.

The project took nearly three months and cost $500,000. The statue is 15 feet high and weighs 1,150 pounds.

Once a Benedictine abbey, the monastery became a prison during the French Revolution. The monastery now houses members of the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem, a religious institute founded in 1975.
