Les Halles, Paris

1.2
Les Halles was named for a large marketplace that was demolished in 1971 and replaced with an underground modern shopping area. Its labyrinthine underground alleys once sold fish, meat, and vegetables, and the fresh food market was the center of the city. You can now explore an open-air center area below street level, a sunken garden that contains sculptures, fountains, and mosaics. Beneath the shopping precinct lies the underground station Châtelet-Les-Halles, a central hub of Paris's express commuter rail system, the RER.
