Cultural Sites in France
Exploring the most beautiful chateaux, museums and monuments in France
 
  Introduction
 

Calling all Francophiles, along with those who love to discover more about French culture... All those who enjoy history, culture and the art of living well: we invite you to join us as we explore France throughout its châteaux, museums and monuments.

Presenting 200 of the most prestigious sites, guardians of our past and of our history, we offer an open door to our exceptional heritage. From prehistoric caves to the standing stones of Carnac; from the finest art collections in the Louvre or Orsay museums, to parks and gardens that offer a moment of reverie; from the architectural masterpieces of the past abbeys, cathedrals and châteaux such as Chenonceau, Blois and Chantilly, to today's impressive monuments like the Arch at La Défense, or the Centre Georges Pompidou; from sites of intimate charm like the Clos-Lucé d'Amboise, where Leonardo da Vinci once lived, to the château of Auvers-sur-Oise where Impressionism blossomed, each tells its own story - its traditions, its residents, its character.

France is proud of the diversity and richness of its heritage. The French Tourist Office is working along these châteaux, museums and monuments to publicize to and welcome visitors.
