A reminder of the European Heritage Days

The European Heritage Days (JEP) are annual national and international events taking place in more than fifty countries, based on the model of the “Open Days of Historic Monuments” initiated by the Ministry of Culture led by Jack Lang on 23rd September 1984.

The aim of these days is to show as many people as possible the richness of the national heritage through original events, visits and exceptional openings of numerous buildings, museums and places that may be exceptionally open to the public. 

These local events take place every year from the end of August to the beginning of November

This year the theme is sustainable heritage
