Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines The Essential
This new town is the first from the second half of the 20C to be designated a "Ville d'art et d'histoire". Saint Quentin is characterised by town planning that simultaneously incorporated housing and essential services. You will get an idea of the design of "neighbourhood centres" in the Sept Mares shopping centre in Élancourt, and also see some contemporary architectural creations at Montigny-le-Bretonneux.
