Mont-Saint-Michel, one of the most quintessential examples of European heritage, and one of the first properties to be inducted on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, can be taken as an example to highlight the role tourism played to its constitution as major national heritage. Mont Saint-Michel offers a pertinent example of the participation of tourism in the heritage development processes. It also allows to define the role of tourism actors (including tourists) in the heritage development of sites, places or objects that they contribute to reflexively co-produce, according to their own imaginary and expectations.
