  • Top 50 Most Famous Monuments of France

Last Updated: 23 January 2024

It could be challenging to set a list of the top 10 most famous monuments of France. The truth is that such a list is highly subjective… unless you consider the number of visitors per monument. The other issue with French monuments is that there are so many of them. They are also diverse, from Roman ruins to Renaissance chateaux and Gothic cathedrals to stunning bridges… All that to say, it makes it hard to rank them all. So, if you don’t mind, here is a (very) personal attempt at listing my top 50 monuments in France. If you have another ranking in mind, please share it by commenting below; it’d be interesting to hear about it! 


About the Monuments of France


In 2018, France welcomed 89.4 million foreign visitors.

Never before did the country record so many tourists. This record makes France the world’s top destination.

The French government’s tourism committee targets 100 million foreign tourists by the end of the 2020s decade.

Tourism is a crucial sector of the French economy (it accounts for nearly 8% of GDP). Visitors come to France to explore its sheer landscape diversity ranging from coastline to gently rolling hills and snow-capped mountains… The beauty of France is seen in each of its regions. They all look and feel different. You’ll find this in the architecture, gastronomy and sometimes in the accent.


There are so many famous sites and landmarks!

A big part of France’s tourist success comes from its famous monuments.

The Eiffel Tower, of course. And many monuments of Paris such as Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre

But the Province (France except for Paris!) also boasts some grand and renowned landmarks. Some of them welcome millions of visitors each year. People would travel from far away to discover their beauty.

  1. I’m meant to be visiting Paris in Match for my annual trip – it’s my girlfriend’s 40th – but it looks like she’ll be going by herself (as a French national) whilst I rebook my Eurostar ticket again…

    1. I forgot to mention, I’d love to visit the upstairs of Au Père Tranquille, opposite Forum Les Halles.

      As a writer, to sit amongst the books and feel the historicity of the city would be an absolute dream

  2. Bonjour Pierre! This is a tough question since France is loaded with so many wonderful treasures. I think for me I would want to be in Paris and simply be a flaneuse in the LeftBank. I’d like to walk around and look through the windows of art galleries, old book shops, admire the architecture, buy a delicious pastry, and visit a garden or two. I would have a long pause at a terrace cafe for a drink and people watching. I am looking forward to the day when we can do these sorts of things again.

  3. Thank you for your posts.
    All the way from Wollongong, Australia after COVID,. I would like to spend time in Annecy.
    Also if you know anything about Auxerre I would be keen to here for you please.
    I would like to attempt to spend 3 months in a small town so as to improve my language skills.

    1. You’re welcome. I’ve never been to Auxerre but it is a place in Burgundy on my to-do-list! It’s a medium-sized town with a nice historic centre. If I manage to go there in the near future I will post on it! 🙂

  4. If I am allowing myself to dream, I would love to live in France, preferably in Paris. I have a creative skill set: I write, draw, illustrate, do photo and video. So, ideally, I would live in Paris doing something creative. Is that possible? Or what would be the first steps to take? I think the first step would be to establish myself and willing to work any job. Anyway, may as well start the ball rolling. I know it would not be easy.

    1. That’s a fantastic dream Henry… I guess your thought of establishing yourself first and look for any job opportunity is a great way to start. Unfortunately Paris is a very expensive place to live… unless you choose a smaller historic town in “la France profonde”.

  5. June 6th of 2020 was our 50th anniversary and my husband and I had plans to spend it in Paris. We have been to France on a number of occasions and have loved everywhere we went, from Strasbourg, to Eze, Nice, Dijon, Beaune, Lyon and on. This time we had plans to tour Monet’s gardens in Giverny. So disappointing about the necessary delay but hopeful for a better 2021.

  6. Dreaming of Provence, was slated for Summer 2020….now looking ahead. Thank you for all of your great emails this year, has helped us keep the hopes alive 🙂

  7. Paris Opera house tour at night. Chenonceau, Palais de Versailles, danse by river Seine, plage ou mon ancetre a left Dieppe, France in 1650. On a Friday afternoon, where Joan of Arc was imprisoned and burned at stake. To dine inside restaurant in that same city where Joan died, where Julia Child was inspired to cook. Anne is cooking at Monmartre, Paris. St. Malo, Valence Auberge ( central S France), Monet gardens for the afternoon. Building in Paris where Benny Hinn and David Herzog have hosted meetings. Jersey Island manoir of Charles Robin, plaque on St. Aubin about fishery business ties between Jersey Island and Gaspe. Jersey where daffodils grow in April. Chartres where saint Caron was killed by two robbers. Cathedral of Chartres. A business in South France where they make perfumes, I want to make some. Cobbled streets. A little downtown apartment in Paris I can rent and live or inherit from relatives. A house in France country with a big back yard where I can garden. Italy. Hot sunny days from a 2nd floor of a home in Italy. Rides on a motorbike in France. Driving in the countryside. Notre Dame Cathedral. Cathedral in Dieppe where my ancestor would have been baptised as a baby, same with Rouen but that one is maybe gone. Old flour mill. Vineyard. Fields of lavender and sunflowers, every kind of crop.

  8. Where would I like to be now?

    Exploring the Bordeaux wine estates and chateaux OR having lunch in one of the Paris brasseries.

    Thanks for all your efforts this year – and we look forward to more exploration and discoveries in 2021,.

  9. It was very upsetting to have our trip to France cancelled early in 2020 We are from Australia and international travel is not allowed at the moment but, hopefully, mid 2021.
    Anyway. I realise that your favourite areas are in Northern France but I have to mention that my favourite area in France is the Languedoc. We stayed in Pezenas (best Saturday markets in France) in 2007 for the World Cup and I fell in love with Pezenas and the surrounding districts. It is only 1/2 hour from Cap D’Agde ad Sete and the best oyster area next to Cancale , a town called .Bouziques. A day’s trip can easily include Carcassonne, Aigues Mortes, Nimes, Arles and many other villages in Provence so I can thoroughly recommend the Pezenas area for a holiday..

  10. Last time in France I found, with 3 friends, a real treat. The town of Troyes just one hour by train from Paris. And it’s a different time period.

    I love Lyon too and the bird sanctuary on the Camargue with the pink flamingos!!
