    The high flight of human mind – it was my first idea when I saw La Defence. Amazing high-tech style and light composition of La Defence buildings made me wonder.

    more than just a big cube

    by denise16 Written Aug 30, 2004

    I have a real fear of heights but decided to give it a go. I closed my eyes all the way up (and back down) the glass lift. The gallery at the top was very interesting and the views were awsome.

    Grande Arche

    by Emke Updated May 7, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The grande Arche in the business district La Defense is especially beautiful by night.

    The three arcs (Grande Arche, Arc de Triomphe and the little Arc at the Louvre) all lay in one line.

    La Defense is the Business District of Paris. You will find there the Grande Arche and many modern architecture. At night it is quite deserted. There seems to be a large shopping center too.

    If you have the chance to go up to the arch, go ahead!! Last time I have been there I saw an exposition on the top of the arch. The view is also amazing.

    Great building situated in the business area of Paris. It's very cool to take the glass elevator to the top, from where you'll have a magnificent view.

    It's a very modern area of Paris, where there's lots of shops and businesses. The most amazing thing about it is the way it looks.
