Become a patron of your story

"It is the civic governance embodied in its resurrection today. This is heralding new times for heritage preservation. A heritage lived for its shared aesthetic and memorial values, which disregards the old hatreds that have given birth to so many Bastilles!

It is this initiative of the inhabitants carried by the tenacity of a visionary, accompanied by the communities and the State which leads today to this virtuous valuation, strong symbol of new partnerships between participative citizenship and institutions.

Let's bet that the association of the Friends of the Royal Door will make many emulators, to bring to life places of an upset memory."

After 4 years of work and animations of the Royal Gate it was necessary to mark the time with a beautiful work that immortalizes our action.

All the friends and actors of this beautiful project have mobilized to write and provide images and archives elements to make this beautiful brochure that allows to place the Royal Door in its past and current history.
