Les Halles, Paris

(1/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Already a mall have no soul... But this one, it and worst of all! It is immence, the shops are widely spaced and there's nothing special... We went there only for the Lego store which is pretty good.

  • All the stores you want are at Les Halles. It will be appreciated strolling quietly passing from one store to another. There are all the big brands. Security has been strengthened at the entrance (frames for some doors, security with metal detectors). But this isn't as long as they are unpleasant, instead.

  • Personally I love its renovation but, for a provincial like me, I think that it is difficult to identify and find the sign you are looking for. Very wide range of shops but found in all major cities.
