La Défense

Recommended
The Puteaux, Courbevoie and Nanterre councils share this constantly mutating "business district". A huge esplanade scattered with contemporary sculptures, the Palais de La Défense (CNIT), which, with its huge dome, is the best known of the buildings here... with the exception of the Grande Arche. Major restructuring works are planned, and, while more parks and gardens are to appear, new skyscrapers continue to spring up.
