In the Defense area is a real nice and big shopping center called
Quatre Temps which besides quite a lot of shops has also quite a few gastronomic facilities

“Modern Arch and Great Shopping!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The arch is nice and modern. The area is nice, safe, and clean. The malls are great. We had good pictures with the arch. The interior at Cnit mall is modern and beautiful.

“Sleek Architecture and good shopping”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Grande Arche was simply modern and sleek, other skyscrapers in he neighborhood was also worth a visit. Went on the weekend and it was surprisingly quiet!

The square in the center is a good place to chill, surrounded by shopping malls with some quite affordable shops too!

“Another arch . . .”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

in a line of many arches, starting at the Louvre and working west. New, big, commercial, chrome, glass. Everything we came to Paris to escape. It is the end of Metro line 1.

“There are other things to do in Paris”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This was my first visit to La Defense following many visits to Paris. It's ok. It's in the middle of a business and shopping district, kind of creepy quiet on the weekend. Very cool view of the Arc de Triomphe many miles away, but not worth the time.
