Valorisation du Patrimoine

Description

Heritage is an unmistakable place linking the past, the present and the future. It invites us to reflect on the authenticity of things. Fragile, it nevertheless resists and displays its vestiges as traces of history and human footprints. Sometimes hidden, sometimes more visible, heritage is confidently displayed in the heart of the Cognac region.

Material evidence of the passage of men and societies over the centuries, heritage is a concentrate of stories that enriches our history.

Each year, a programme produced by the Grand Cognac Heritage Development Department, entitled "Heritage Rendezvous", offers numerous opportunities for discovery.

Throughout the year and from April onwards, people from here and elsewhere have the opportunity to discover numerous buildings, places and pages of history. Contributing to enriching the diversity of the region's heritage, these "Heritage Rendezvous" offer an unexpected, surprising and captivating historical panorama.

Between singular and historic escapades, night-time and musical shows, meetings with enthusiasts, the aim is to highlight unusual and atypical places and to explore their secrets. Behind the buildings, the long stone walls or the Charente's close relatives, there are hidden talents, know-how and unsuspected architecture. These "Rendezvous" bring our heritage to life and make it accessible, thus contributing to the attractiveness of our region.
