Les Halles

Built by the architect Edouard Warin and the engineer Pommier, the halls replaced the Châtelet in 1888, a former eighteenth century fortified castle, subsequently transformed into a prison.

This beautiful architecture combining glass and iron is directly inspired by Parisian models and in particular the central halls of Paris.
To the north takes place the forecourt or "la corbeille", space reserved for the outdoor market, and to the south the recent redevelopments have restored a lively square in direct connection with the urban fabric.
