The Halles district is a very lively area ifituated in the heart of Paris! We go there to shop, in the Forum des Halles, recognizable by its light wood canopy (a convenient underground shopping center) when it rains! The two most important museums to visit in this area are thee Pompidou Center (Beaubourg) and the museum of contemporary art of the Bourse. One of the curiosities of the district, the column of Catherine de MediciThe building is located next to the Paris Stock Exchange, in the Halles gardens. Behind Saint-Eustache church is the area of the street MontorgueilLes Halles is a semi-pedestrian street that is lively both day and night (many restaurants and terraces for lunch and dinner).
