In the kingdom of shopping

Recently restored, the Forum des Halles is a vast shopping and leisure center located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement with dozens of shops of all kinds, starting with fashion and accessory brands, such as cafes, restaurants and services. The Forum des Halles is also a place geared towards culture, with a UGC Ciné Cité cinema, the Forum des images, a true memory of Paris where everyone can come and watch 6,500 films on an individual screen, a music library or even a music center. 'animations. Here, Parisians and tourists still find a haven of peace in the swimming pool bordered by a tropical greenhouse.

No less than four underground levels welcome the public in a place in Paris historically dedicated to commerce. It was in fact from the 12th century that Louis VI decided to set up a vast open-air market before Napoleon decided to make the place "the Louvre of the people" and ordered the creation of the Halles de Baltard, who would supply Parisians for several centuries before moving to Rungis in 1969. Ten years later, in place of the "hole of the Halles" left by their destruction, the Forum des Halles opened its doors, becoming a vast shopping center, which now has a new look, which does not prevent visitors from rushing, who to buy a piece of jewelry or a pair of sneakers, who to post his letters, who to treat himself to a relaxing or gourmet break.
