European Heritage Days
A key event in the autumn, the European Heritage Days take place every year during the 3rd weekend in September. Time for all to discover or rediscover the treasures of our national heritage and to understand the rich legacy of the past.
All forms of heritage are honoured, whether artistic, archaeological, industrial, agricultural, agricultural, river or military.
Sometimes closed to the public the rest of the year, a wide variety of places can be visited (often with a guide): churches, castles, museums, banks, prefectures, courthouses, chambers of commerce, town halls, private residences…. Many unusual places open their doors: television channel headquarters, former prisons, factories and factories, behind the scenes of public transport…
In Paris, the high places of power also play the game, such as the Palais de l'Elysée (seat of the Presidency of the French Republic and official residence of the President of the Republic), the Palais du Luxembourg (seat of the French Senate) or the Hôtel de Matignon (official residence of the Head of the French Government).
