The 27th European Heritage Days take place this year within the theme of ‘Sustainable heritage’.

Heritage, enduring by nature, is yesterday’s legacy that we enjoy today thanks to the commitment of an entire community. It comes to us because it has been restored and preserved by past generations.

This 2022 edition offers the possibility of meeting heritage stakeholders through a forty sites as well as a contemporary art trail.
