La Defense at the heart of modern Paris with a unique architecture You can easily get here using a Metro Line or RER train. It offers you a nice view of Arc De Triumph, has nice shopping areas, movie theater and a bunch of nice restaurants. Must visit for every Paris traveler who loves Modern Architecture

Emblematic building, that characterises the whole area, at the higher point of Plade de La Defence park, close to Esplanade de La Defense station, surrounded by mainly glass-faced buildings of modern architecture, closed to one of the biggest mall of shops in Europe.

Saw this massive structure near La Defense metro.. Very striking, but a lot of construction is going on.. So couldn't enjoy much.

The Grande Arche is the symbolic monument of the business district La Défense. This massive structure can be seen from almost anywhere in Paris with a bit of elevation. This gigantic arch is the 20th century version of the Arc De Triomphe. The Grande Arche de la Défense is the end of a line of monuments that runs through Paris... More

The arch is impressive in size and fascinating because it's also an office building! After seeing the more ornate Arc de Triomphe you'll appreciate it's presence in the financial district of Paris.

From the La Grande Arche de La Defense there is straight line linking the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe which is an impressive sight, however not as impressive as the view of the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadéro. You can hardly miss the La Grande Arche when you are in the La Defense business district, so definitely worth keeping... More
