Useful information


Extending the perspective of the historical axis from the Louvre to the Grande Arche, La Défense was built half a century ago based around a futuristic vision. A showcase of contemporary architecture, this district resolutely focused on the future has become an international financial centre, an open-air museum and a stage for artistic creativity with its vast esplanade dotted with modern sculptures. The Arche de La Défense, a modern incarnation of the Arc de Triomphe, is its best-known building.
