ABOUT THE HERITAGE DAYS
One weekend per year (in september), historic sites around Paris and all over France open to the public – including monuments, privately owned buildings and gardens, government sites and more.
For the first time, they were held in France in 1984 on the initiative of the Minister of Culture Jack Lang. Since 1991 till present, they are known as the European Heritage Days and are organized by the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
