With a past so rich that began with the first appearance of man, France identifies itself through its thousands of historical sites. Retrace the footsteps of Renaissance painters in the Loire Valley, of soldiers of the two World Wars, or, why not, project yourself into the future!

Romanesque, Renaissance, Classicism, Surrealism… Artistic movements have left their mark on history. From Roman abbeys to contemporary art museums, gothic cathedrals to landscapes that inspired the Impressionists, discover France's artistically rich heritage.

French history is marked by great men and women whose legends are known by all. Still, you'd like to learn more about Joan of Arc, Louis XIV or, closer to us in time, Georges Pompidou? Historical trails, chateaux, gardens, and even museums and memorials take us back in time to the lives of these emblematic figures.
