La Defense tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Le Defense just simply has to be experienced and provides a welcome respite from the historical tours of central Paris. When construction began back in the 1950s La Defense was heralded as one of the most complex civil-engineering projects ever undertaken. It took a couple of decades to establish itself but today La Defense is home to 70% of the largest corporations in France.
The futuristic architecture of La Defense makes you feel like you have jumped forward in time. For example take a look at the vaulted, triangular Centre des Nouvelles Industries et Technologies. You'll also want to head to the Grande-Arche which houses government and business offices. The Grande Arche sits on a historic axis and you'll be able to get an almost uninterrupted view of the Arc de Triomphe from ground level!
