Historical monuments in Centre Val-de-Loire
A historic monument is a legal status attributed to a monument (or part of the monument) or to an object with sufficient historical, artistic and/or architectural public interest to render its preservation desirable. There are two levels of protection: registration and classification. The status of a historic monument means that an object or building is recognized for its heritage value in terms of history and art. As such, the owner of a historic monument has an important responsibility for the preservation of this legacy of history and its transmission to future generations.
