La Defense is Paris' modern high-rise and office-tower district. It is also the site of the Grand Arc, one of Paris' more modern landmarks.


  • Skyscrapers in all shapes and forms. Driving - and walking - around the area can be visually stimulating, if you find pleasure in modern glass-and-steel construction.
  • The Grand Arc de la Defense, a high-rise building that reminds more of a hollow cube than an arch per se - has a viewing platform on its top. Entrance fee is € 7.50; this does include the varying small art exhibitions of more or less unknown artists on the upper floor as a "bonus". Definitely reocmmended for the view. Lines tend to be short.
