One of the first buildings placed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites is Mount St. Michael in France, 1979. In addition to its beauty, this is specifically for another reason. You may notice the biggest difference in sea level during high and low tides, and even reaching 15 meters.

Although an interesting phenomenon, it is very dangerous for visitors. In fact, if you find yourself on the road to the mountain at low tide, the sand is wet and you sink into it like quicksand, and with the tide, which quickly comes across, you can also drown.
