Like every year, this weekend a number of french major historical buildings will open their doors to public admittance. Created in 1984 by the Minister of Culture Jack Lang, les Journées Européennes du Patrimoine is held yearly on the third weekend of September.
During this two days (20th and 21st September) you can visit a number of monuments for free such as the Senate (Palais du Luxembourg), Assemblée Nationale (Palais Bourbon) and many others. The best city where you can find the most interesting places is of course Paris but other provincial towns such Lille and Lyon also offer free visits and tours.
This event is now created in a few other European countries such as Belgium and Switzerland, so even if you are not in France, you can still enjoy them.

Don’t miss out! Hope you’ll have a great weekend!
