See & Do
Les Halles is not just anchored by the world-famous museum, the Centre Georges Pompidou, but one could say it is defined by it. When the structure was completed in 1977 many residents bemoaned it as an eyesore. Though others compared it, wisely, with the Eiffel Tower.
It is surrounded by a pedestrian zone now and nearby is the Théatre du Chatelet and also the Stravinsky Fountain, a good place to read a book outside in the sun.
