☆ Forum des Halles and its garden ☆
From the 12th century until 1969, the “belly of Paris” and its colourful population, so well depicted in the novels of Emile Zola, supplied the capital with food..
The covered market was transferred to Rungis and was replaced by an ensemble of galleries on four levels..
The Forum shopping centre is also – on the place Carrée side – a cultural space with a multimedia library, a music and dance centre, a swimming pool, and a tropical greenhouse, and offers a number of cinema auditoriums..
On the garden side, there are lawns, fountains and play areas to enjoy..
1-7, rue Pierre-Lescot (1st).
