Since 1979, twenty-three French sites have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. In order to give them the credit they deserve, this book brings them together in the order in which they were recognised by UNESCO. There are nearly five hundred photographs by Jean-Jacques Gelbart, with texts by Jacques Pierron, making this book a personal, sensitive, human journey which reveals and adds to our understanding of a significant proportion of French heritage.
