Minas Tirith in Real Life

I know current heat is Transformers and Harry Porter, let’s not forget the classic LOTR. 

For LOTR fans, we always admire Minas Tirith, the last stronghold of human. We always thought such a city only exists in fantasy. This couldn’t be true until you see Mont Saint-Michel. More impressive than Minas Tirith, Mont Saint-Michel is actually build on top a rocky tidal island in Normandy, France. The island is connected to the mainland via a thin natural land bridge, thus transforming it into an island during high tide. The inhabitants of Mont Saint-Michel called themselves Montois, sounds LOTR. In fact, the design of Peter Jackson’s LOTR Minas Tirith is inspired by Mont Saint-Michel. Another candidate into my 1000 must visit place before I die.
