La Défense is Europe’s largest purpose-built business district, covering 1,400 acres with 1,500 businesses, 2,600 hotel rooms, 180,000 daily workers, 20,000 residents, and 72 glass and steel buildings of which 19 are skyscrapers (over 490 feet tall). It’s home to 8 of the 10 tallest buildings in the Paris region. And it’s within walking distance of our apartment so we got off at their Metro stop when we were coming home from a garden and then just walked home when we were finished.
There are 60 modern art sculptures and monuments scattered throughout Le Defense. Below are a few we came across during our walk through.
