Using their search engine, you can consult their database providing more than 1,8 millions pieces of data: photos, paintings, but also guided visits, bibliographies... that cover all angles of art, from architecture to music to genealogy. For example, type in "Adam and Eve" and it will give you a vast list of images and historical monuments illustrating Adam and Eve.
A perfect site whether you're doing a research paper or looking for a specific historic image.
You can also get info on current expos, libraries, literature, events happening all over France...the list is endless.
