Real-Life Minas Tirith

It’s the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel fortified monastery. In one form or another, the monastery has stood for about 1,000 years.

A statue of St. Michael the Archangel is at the pinnacle of the tower.

When Peter Jackson made the Lord of the Rings movies, he used Mont Saint-Michel to inspire the appearance of Minas Tirith, while also carefully following Tolkien’s description.
