Les Halles, Paris
(1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Les Halles was named for a large marketplace that was demolished in 1971 and replaced with an underground modern shopping area. Its labyrinthine underground alleys once sold fish, meat, and vegetables, and the fresh food market was the center of the city. You can now explore an open-air center area below street level, a sunken garden that contains sculptures, fountains, and mosaics. Beneath the shopping precinct lies the underground station Châtelet-Les-Halles, a central hub of Paris's express commuter rail system, the RER.

  • Maze of shops selling fruits, vegetables, meat and fish and cheese. A good Parisian experience. Would recommend this place to all visitors. 
  • Have arrived in Metro (PER) Châtelet Les Halles to the ground and very difficult to understand. Ask the attendant to keeping an eye on the movement of the finger, while remembering the feeling that somehow got on the ground floor of a new shopping center. Currently, Shibuya Station is lost even people accustomed to speak, he visited for the first time, but we've redeveloped, to wander and I've heard the same past Les Halles maybe feeling isn't it. Together is a station where many subway lines, building redevelopment in the still on there page under construction. It is like central market was touted as a masterpiece of steel buildings is also moved to the suburbs and the new shopping centre is also just recently completed, I wait to complete the construction of the Park is on the West side of the district.

  • The structure that housed the old markets is being renovated and with it all the surrounding square, among other great! A large mall where you will find great gastronomical chains like Starbuck and MacD, but also the clothing giants such as Zara, H & M, Maison du Monde. In this almost 5 metro lines converge metro + RER, which mean a crossroads really immense.
