A small castle by Sena river was demolished under Napoleon's orders, creating a large square. In its centre a fountain was built, with a central pillar topped by Victory's statue.

Nowadays, taking advantage of its central location, Chatelet is a very important transport hub, with the biggest underground station for train and metro.

Address: Metro: Chatelet, Les Halles
Directions: At Quai de la Mégisserie & Quai de Gesvres.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
