Use the image of the monument
The castle of Angers is a French monument classified as a historical monument and managed by the public administrative establishment "Le Centre des monuments nationaux", under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture.
Since 2017, the castle of Angers is "national domain" by the decree No. 2017-720 which recognizes it as a result "an exceptional link with the history of the Nation".
Article L621-34 of the Heritage Code establishes that "the use for commercial purposes of the image of the buildings that constitute the national domains, on any medium, is subject to prior authorization of the manager of the relevant part of the national domain. This authorization may take the form of a unilateral act or a contract, with or without financial conditions".
The use for commercial purposes of the image of all or part of the National Estate of the Château d'Angers and the collections it contains is therefore subject to authorization by the administrator of the monument and may entail the payment of a fee. This applies to all images, including those taken from the public highway.
Commercial use" means the use of the image of the monument on a commercial product (book cover or inside pages, postcard, derivative product, painting...) or on any communication medium (poster, flyer, social networks, website...) aimed at promoting a company or a product.
