The 2018 Heritage Day
Jewel of architecture
My dear readers,
France but also Europe has a very wide cultural offer thanks to the richness of its heritage, the vitality of its artistic scene and the authenticity of its Art de Vivre!
You should know, my dear readers, that the 2018 edition of the European Heritage Days will take place on the 15th and 16th of September.
In the French capital, the monuments and historic sites will open their doors for free to show us their treasures! Exhibitions, visits, walks, the time of a weekend, explore Paris and its well-known places.
Every year, during this exceptional event, the Palais de l'Elysée opens its doors to the general public! Enjoy these two unique days to visit this high place of power. The lounges, the library, the gardens... a true jewel of architecture will be open to you!
The French are very proud of their tangible and intangible cultural heritage. The concept of heritage is now widely understood, as it encompasses traditions, languages and gastronomy!
Today, the French gastronomy is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The French like to meet and enjoy together good dishes and good wines, it is a tradition that has lasted for centuries.
The French baguette will soon be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This delicious product, which is the daily life of the French, is one of the main French symbols with the Eiffel Tower!
Did you know that the word "Copain" comes from the Latin meaning "to share his bread"? Indeed, in the Middle Ages, thick slices of stale bread were used as plates, placed on chopping boards for 2 people: hence the word "buddy" of the Latin Cum Panis, or "share his bread".
See you soon!
