St Michael's Mount:


St Michael's Mount, a small tidal island in Cornwall's Mount's Bay, is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway, passable only at mid or low tide. It's a place steeped in history and legends, creating a mystical atmosphere that has intrigued visitors for centuries.

The island's history can be traced back to ancient times. It was originally known as a sacred site in the prehistoric era, with archaeological evidence suggesting human presence during the Neolithic and Mesolithic periods. The key discovery of a leaf-shaped flint arrowhead suggests early human activity on the island. It's believed that the island was once surrounded by a marshy forest, evident from the remains of trees seen at low tides.

St Michael's Mount became a site of religious significance around 495 AD when legends tell of seafarers being lured or guided by an apparition of St Michael. The Archangel Michael is said to have appeared on the island, making it a pilgrimage site for centuries. The island also boasts of four miracles that occurred in the 13th century, adding to its religious allure.
