European Heritage Days
Heritage accessible to all.
Every year in September, the Journées du Patrimoine or Heritage Days constitute a major cultural event that attracts a huge number of people. Buildings are opened to the public and events organised, with the aim of revealing the heritage that co-exists alongside our daily lives.
The sites and events are testament to the diversity of French heritage: rural, archaeological, military, religious, literary and iconographic heritage, as well as maritime and waterway heritage, industrial architecture, parks and gardens.
Since 1991, the Heritage Days have taken on a European dimension.
From Saturday, September 15 2012 to Sunday, September 16 2012
