Les Halles Details
Being situated in such a central location of Paris, Les Halles market is close by the major attractions and transport links. With its own metro station and overground railway station, Les Halles is a popular area of Paris, centrally located in the capitals first arrondissement. Les Halles is named after a large wholesale marketplace that used to be the central feature of the area. However, this was destroyed in 1971 and replaced with an underground modern shopping area known as Forum des Halles. Les Halles is especially known for its open-air centre that sits just below street level. It contains various magnificent sculptures, fountains and mosaics for the tourists and shoppers to admire as they pass through Les Halles. Beneath this center lies an underground station, Châtelet-Les-Halles, which is the central hub of Paris's express urban rail system, the RER.
Historically an area associated with antisocial activities, Les Halles has more recently resolved its problems and is now a much safer and more pleasant place to visit, even after dark. The open-air centre, with its wonderful artistic representations, can be enjoyed by anyone who wishes to visit there. The underground station is also a great place to travel to and from any other area in Paris and is a great place to begin your travel for the day. The impressive glise Saint-Eustache, the Bourse du Commerce and Musée Grévin all surround the sunken garden, and major attractions such as the Louvre and Centre Georges Pompidou are just a few minutes walk away.
