The Historic Cafés Route is an opportunity to discover emblematic establishments of heritage (literary, musical, artistic and political) rooted in the European history and culture of the 18th-20th centuries. These historic cafés represent a wide range of architectural styles (neo-baroque, art nouveau, art deco, modernism, etc.). They are the historical reflection of an emerging European middle class that exchanged views on culture and politics while enjoying coffee, cakes and pastries.
