The Arc in La Defence built parallel to The Arc of Triumph and both arcs are like two parallels of two epoch.
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.
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.
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.
Modern architecture dominated by the grande arche. Take the elevator up to the top of grande arche for a great view into the city.
La Defénse it's a western modern zone of Paris. There you can find huge buildings, offices of the biggest european companies, shoppings, etc.
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.
If you don't like scyscrapers there is much beautiful open-air crazy modern art on the ground in La Defense district. I liked it very much. What do you think?
Don't miss open-air impressive and colorful sculptures by Joan Miro while you are in modern La Defense district (western Paris).
Surprise: looking at them is free of charge :-)
L'Arche de la Defense: The 21 st century skyscrapers business district erected outside the western city-limits of Paris was recently enriched by the spectacular Grande Arche.
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.
La Grande Arche is the modern Arc de Triomphe of Paris and it´s the centrum of La Defense, the modern skyscraper district with offices etc.
