The heritage of France by Craig McGinty
THIS weekend sees many government buildings and monuments open their doors to mark European Heritage Day.
Between 18 and 19 September buildings as diverse as the Paris Observatory, a World War One air ship hanger and even the museum of the national electricity company EDF will be open to the public.
The event is marked throughout Europe and sees many institutions lay on special events and tours of buildings few people get the chance to see.
France has chosen a theme of ‘Heritage, Science and Technology’ with buildings across the country welcoming visitors over the weekend.
