Although I'm not a big fan of modern architecture, I have to admit that I really liked La Defense.

In a huge contrast to the old historical part of Paris, I had the impression of being in another world, in other time. Or better in Besson's "The 5th element"...

Wearing the name of a monument commemorating the defense of Paris of 1871, La Defense is divided in 11 zones, with business offices, parks, sport facilities, a botanical garden and an open-air gallery.

Address: West Paris.
Directions: M: La Defense ? Grande Arche (line 1)
