Located about 10 kilometers from Annecy in France, the Gorges du Fier is one of the easier slot canyons to walk through. That’s because visitors go through the canyon on a railed walkway that is about 30 meters (100 feet) above a river rushing below. Previous visitors say people who are afraid of heights may want to avoid this. They also say to use caution on the walkway when it’s wet. The canyon is so narrow in spots, visitors can touch both sides.

Mont St. Michel Prints by Philip Plisson - The Mont Saint Michel is an abbaye built on a rock in the middle of a bay, in Normandy, France. At low tide, one can walk on the sand, at high tide, the Mont is surrounded by the sea and cut from the continent. It is still a place of pilgrimage, monks and nuns still live there, and masses are still celebrated in the church at the top of the mount.

Les abbayes de Caen
France, Caen, Abbaye aux Hommes, En 1050, Guillaume le Bâtard, duc de Normandie, épouse Mathilde de Flandres. Leurs liens de parenté rendent leur mariage irrégulier aux yeux de l'Eglise. Le pape Léon IX condamne donc leur union. A ce motif officiel s'ajoute la crainte de l'Eglise de voir unies deux grandes puissances : la Flandre et la Normandie (les Normands installés en Sicile ayant déjà menacé la papauté).
