As part of the Qatar-France Year of Culture 2020, Qatar's embassy in Paris participated for the first time in the 37th edition of the European Heritage Days.
The events were opened on Saturday at the embassy in central Paris by Qatar's ambassador to France Sheikh Ali bin Jassim al-Thani.
A number of visitors from Paris and other regions in France visited the embassy headquarters known as the Landolfo-Carcano palace which was built in 1868.
The palace is filled with murals and oil paintings on the walls, as well as sculptures of famous French and European painters.
On the occasion of the embassy's participation in this cultural event this year, several French media outlets included the embassy in Paris on the list of Parisian buildings that opened their doors to the public for the European Heritage Days.
The list included the Elysee Palace, the Parliament House, Senate building and Matignon Palace, in addition many prominent museums, universities, historical libraries and archaeological sites in the capital Paris.
Qatar embassy's participation in this cultural event for 2020 comes within the framework of its keenness to highlight the role of Qatar in promoting interest in culture, especially during the Qatar-France Year of Culture, as culture can achieve rapprochement between peoples, in accordance with the Qatar National Vision 2030.
The participation in this event reflected Qatar's relentless efforts to keep the cultural heritage alive within various events and occasions, and it is the best evidence of the depth of friendship between Qatar and France, and the mutual understanding and consolidated support between the two countries and the two peoples.
