As for the edition in 2018, this list is an inventory à la Prévert”, which reflects the diversity of the French heritage, monumental, vernacular, industrial, or religious. It covers all the regions, in a spirit calculated to balance. Six monuments are located in territories overseas, for a long time the forgotten greats of the heritage policy.

in Addition to the criteria of geographic diversity, the Mission to Bern was also given to the restoration project presented by the sites, and their ability to reinvigorate their territory. The restoration of the doors of Saint Pierre, in Martinique, for example, should give a boost to tourism to this small town. Center of trade in the Nineteenth century, Saint Pierre was completely destroyed by the eruption of mount pelee, in 1902. It still possesses the ruins moving and full of history, that the Martinique penalty to value, as well as a museum that is under exploited. The restoration work of the only facades represent 500 000 euros!

Gorde, in the Vaucluse, in the case of the abbey of Senanque, a masterpiece of romanesque art dating back to the Twelfth century, is also significant. After the consolidation work carried out in the years 80, the community of brothers cistercians noticed that his abbey was threatened with collapse (The wall of concrete having played on the structure). For several months, she attempts to alert the public to the tragic fate of his monument: jobs account for 1.2 million euros that the Abbey has, of course, not. The brothers, who live according to the rule of Saint Benedict, grow lavender or olives, and is home to 200,000 visitors per year.

“It allows us to live, but not to pay bills astronomical” calculates the steward of the community, Pierre-Yves Rinquin, last December, in a column in Figarovox . So much so that the publicity around the threat of collapse of the church has tended to become increasingly scarce in the sightseeing, tourists thinking that the site was closed for security reasons. The mannes games Mission Heritage, we guess, should give a huge breath of fresh air to the Monks and the abbey.

It is not yet known how much money will be raised through the games (depending, obviously, on the level of participation). Like last year, a special drawing of the lottery will be held for the benefit of the monuments in danger. It will take place on Sunday 14 July, a symbolic date for the heritage, designated as the “national cause” – even if on this day, the many bars tobacco are closed, and the French are widely on the beaches. Two scratch games will also be on sale from September. One will be sold at 3 euros, the other at 15 euros.

In 2018, the first edition had met a very great success. 12 million Tickets Mission heritage have been sold, and the special draw of lottery, organized on 14 September 2018, has attracted 2.3 million players. Thanks to this, 22 million euros have been collected for sites. Given the high number of monuments that helped them last year (269), some have been disappointed by the final cheque. The heritage foundation should make an effort to rectify a bit the shot, in the coming months. The number of beneficiaries should also be more modest, and turn around one hundred eighteen (18 iconic, and a hundred others).
