Its size is really impressive. Very modern the same all the surrounding. May serve as an orientation point when you get lost in La Defense as it's really enormous :)

An outstanding view in a place very modern. A must-see at Paris. Enjoy the open space, architeture and a good shopping (biggest mall in Paris).
