EUROPEAN HERITAGE DAYS
 

Every year, on the third weekend of September, heritage sites throughout the Loire Valley open their doors and share their history with you. You can find yourself climbing towers or entering caves and public buildings that would normally be closed to the public.

 

This year's theme, proposed by the Council of Europe and the European Commission, is "the art of sharing". The opportunity for citizens to better understand what brings them together and to celebrate the values ​​they share.
