#116 of 1,994 in Things to do in Paris
La Defense is the site of the Grande Arche, one of Paris' most modern and imposing landmarks, situated at the western end of the grand axis formed by the Champs-Elysées, the Place de la Concorde, and the Arc de Triomphe. This modern high-rise business district of Paris is a purpose-built: In the 1960s, Charles de Gaulle led an effort to concentrate skyscrapers in a single business district, rather than alter the character of downtown Paris with large commercial buildings. You'll find the district at the start of the western outskirts of the city, beyond the last Parisian loop of the river Seine.

  • The place is safe and clean. Everything is well organized. Being a business area makes it crowded sometimes during the weekdays. The metro/RER A station is very convenient serving the place.  more »
