Reunion Island is joining the rest of Europe to celebrate their cultural and natural heritage, which is celebrated this weekend.

Every year, fifty European countries celebrate the richness and variety of their heritage. Launched in 1984 by the Ministry of Culture and Communication in France, the European Heritage Days open the doors for a new cultural experience with visits to sites and buildings of historical value. Also on the program in Reunion this year are visits to the various gardens which have been established across the island.

Between Reunion Island’s Creole cultural heritage and the island’s natural heritage, the weekend of September 19 and 20 will no doubt provide something for everyone’s individual taste and preferences.

The European Heritage Days offer visitors to the island a new opportunity to discover the cultural richness of this French Indian Ocean island of Reunion, the rugged interior, the urban environment, and, of course, the coastal and rural parts across the island.

Each year, national and regional events are organized around a specific theme. For this 32nd edition of the European Heritage Days, the theme is that of the “Heritage of the XXI century, a lesson in history.” Over the same dates, the 13th edition of the “Rendez-vous in the Garden” will invite locals and tourists to enjoy some of the spectacular landscaping efforts in various communes. This is an opportunity to stroll through the walkways of the famous Creole Gardens Reunion, be it alone, as a couple, as an entire family, or with a group of friends.
