La Grande Arch de la Défense
La Grande Arch de la Défense is part of the business centre of Paris and to be completely accurate it is not in Paris but in the Hauts-de-Seine département municipalities of Nanterre, Courbevoie and Puteaux. The Arch lines up with one at the Louvre Museum in central Paris and is in alinement with the Arc de Triomphe. The walk would cover 10 kilometres if you wanted to enjoy the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe and crossing the river seine before arriving at the esplanade of tower blocks that make up the beginning of business centre.
For some reason I don’t fully understand I like the vibrancy of La Défense, the modern architecture and the photo opportunities that present themselves here. Usually I’m more content wandering around a small French village. Maybe because it’s Paris, well nearly, Parisian for sure with the modern touch and well worth a visit.
