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". It has retained buildings from different periods of its past, such as the Chapelle des Templiers in Élancourt and the first low-cost (HBM) and affordable (HLM) housing in Trappes. Saint Quentin demonstrates the development of a working-class suburb and is a good example of 1980s' town planning which paid particular attention to residents' quality of life.
