For the 34th time The European Heritage Open Day will be held next week end, the 16th and 17th of September. This season, the days emphasis will be on the younger audience, raising awareness about their heritage, the history of the Nation including the arts and the craftsmanship of the time.
Whether you are still on holidays, staying at our Castels or you are back at home, you can take advantage of this weekend by discovering places steeped in history and memories !
Every region is filled with historic institutions, often inaccessible to the public during the year. Whether they are situated in private properties belonging to the artists, National Libraries, historical residences, churches or religious entities. The owners open their doors over a period of two days. A unique opportunity to view these buildings abundant in their charm and history.
Of special importance this year is the Abbey of Beauport in Brittany, the University Library of Strasbourg, the Napoleon Museum of Pommerie, the Hermione de Cherlieu in Bourgogne and as always, the Castle of Blainville-Crevon in Normandy.
Among them, some inevitable historic sites, such as the Palais de l’Elysée and the Castles of the Loire !
One needs to leave plenty of time, arriving early so as not to wait too long. These yearly events are extremely popular due to the interest of the public.
