I’ve been going to this spot for many, many years! Each time I’m in Paris, I just gravitate to it. As other reviewers mention, the fountains are sometimes turned off. But even on a cold winter day it makes me happy just to see these...More

Came here for lunch and nice to see the diverse sculptures acting as fountains..one is a little rude with a mermaid spraying water from breasts but all in good humour. Lovely ambience in area

Fun modern sculpture decorates this lovely fountain in the center of old Paris near where there used to be a lot of markets. Now cafes and shopping.

The fountain self is quite different than a usual fountain. It is more a square pond with artworks that spue water. The area is a nice place to sit. Restaurants and cafes are near the fountain. One side of the fountain is big open area...More

This fountain is actually 13 fountains, representing Stravinsky's works. They are not all from The Rite of Spring, as another review suggested. The sculptures are fun and interesting. The problems are 1) the water was turned off in May, and 2) there is no explanation...More

This is a lovely fountain, famous for its colorful and somehow grotesque figures. The fountain is located just next to Pompidou center. There are a couple of restaurants next to the fountain and some street performers as well. Watch your belongings for pickpockets.

I often enjoy people watching at this fountain. It is just outside of the Centre Pompidou. In the winter, when I was there last, it was not operating and had no water in it. When it is operational, it has a bunch of mirthful characters...More

The fountain is a bit weird but the graffiti is pretty damn fine, don’t miss it. It’s easy enough to find, right next to the church.

We saw the Stravinsky Fountain on our way to Centre Pompidou in the early evening on a cold December day. It’s a huge shallow basin (there is a building underneath) adorned with black sculptures by Swiss sculptor Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) and brightly coloured work by...More

Excepting winter time there is an excellent place to relax your feet after a long visit in Pompidou Center or just around Seine. Also is a place of youth with skateboarders, laughs and people enjoying life. A good view to St Marie Church, Dali wall...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
