Les Halles, Paris

1.0
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. By using our Paris road trip planning website , you can arrange your visit to Les Halles and other attractions in Paris.

  • The mythical halls have undergone a facelift and we really regret the time of real halls of the belle epoque. But hey, this place is a hotspot of the capital. Beautiful views for lovers of street photos.

  • The canopy opens a new perspective and brings a creative and contemporary touch to this nice little set previously. There is the pleasure of browsing, new shops and restaurants are nice and the prospect side Rambuteau overlooking the Church Saint Eustache is very beautiful.
