The gate is one of the first things that you see before entering the city. It looks like a drawbridge but not sure if it actually lifts up. There is a gated bit that comes down which might close it off but it was open the entire time we were there. There is also an interesting carving above the gate. It is a nice area to start the experience.

When you have finished your visit of the top, and are moving down hill, you automatically will pass through the “Grand Rue” and on the end of it you will have to pass through the “Kings Gate” or the “Porte du Roi”. In the Middle Ages they had an army unit who was billeted here to demonstrate and protect the right of the French king. It is a beautiful medieval gate. And worth to take a picture of it.

As you begin your time inside Mont St Michel, take a moment at this entrance. Notice the design, the construction, and how important this was to the entire defense system protecting the structure. The iron grids with the drawbridge ahead were all part of the historical entrance and there is a bit of detail to take in adding to your experience.

La Porte du Roy (the king's door, in English) is located in the main entrance of Mont-Saint-Michel, in Normandy, in the North of France. You cross it, when you enter in this religious fortress. Really it is very beautiful and the place is impressive. (see also Abbaye du Mont-St-Michel and Baie du Mont-St-Michel)

It is really fun to enter the island through this entrance, and it presented just as monumental as it looks.
