Heritage and Windmill Days in France

Jours Patrimoine et Moulins posterThroughout France over a weekend in late Spring(18 – 19 May 2019) there will be thousands of sites open to the public to celebrate national Journée du Patrimoine (Heritage Days) and Journée des Moulins (Mill Days).
Over 1,500 events are planned with open days, demonstrations of traditional crafts and skills, exhibitions, tastings – with this year’s theme being centred on “places of production” – agricultural, craft and industrial – some still working businesses.
So you can visit working farms, water mills, have a guided tour of a village to discover its history and heritage, visit an old Railway goods shed, an old tile works, a quarry, a vineyard, a working windmill, a brickworks, see some architectural conservation in progress, an working nut/oil mill, visit a cabinetmaker’s workshop, see bread making, painting and photographic exhibitions….

This is just a selection of the 58 events in one small département (46 Lot, Occitanie) – too many to list here. Best advice is to check with the local tourist office- or browse the list of events (in French) at
