European Heritage Days
Visit the historical library and museum called the Bibliotheque Thiers and its important collections dedicated to the history of France in the 19th century while 12 academicians stand ready to answer your questions. Spend a few moments on the benches of the Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA), a prestigious college housed in one of the last Moorish Revival style buildings of the capital. Discover the behind the scenes world of the Maison La Roche, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2016, and which was built between 1923 and 1925 by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for the avant-garde art collector Raoul La Roche, who wanted to showcase his collection there. Uncover the mysteries of the legendary Harcourt photographic studio, famous for its black and white portraits of movie stars. These are just some of the many exceptional locations that will be open to the public during the upcoming Paris edition of European Heritage Days. JR.
