Penzance and St Michael’s Mount

The port of Penzance sits in the northern end of Mount’s Bay. Georgian buildings characterize much of the town, though its harbourside pool is strictly Art Deco. The town has two excellent galleries that continue in the tradition of the colony of artists who settled in neighbouring Newlyn. Across Mount’s Bay, St Michael’s Mount makes an eye-catching sight. Originally a priory dedicated to the Archangel St Michael and marking the southern end of a pilgrim’s route, St Michael’s Way, the structure was later fortified. Visitors who brave the steep climb to the house are rewarded by stunning views.
