St Michaels Mount was originally a Benedictine Priory from the 12th century. It has a very historic and interesting past. From 1660 it has been the home of the St Aubyn family who still live in the castle but donated the castle and its grounds to National Trust in 1954.
Looking out at St Michaels Mount from the mainland the castle almost has a magical feel about it. Its island mystery seems to draw you to it and tempt you to pay a visit.
