Cultural France

Cultural France

As a major player in European and world history, France has a huge number of historical monuments and cultural hotspots, which naturally attract tourists. Many of France’s most famous monuments have been immortalised in classic literature, such as the Notre Dame Cathedral or Chateau d’If, setting of Alexander Dumas’s classic novel, the Count of Monte Cristo.
Other monuments are testament to huge events in history, such as the Arc du Triomphe and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and others are UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy.
