Grande Halle de La Villette

The Grande Halle, a stone's throw from the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, is the former abattoir of La Villette. Built between 1865 and 1867, it is listed as a historical monument. Restored between 2005 and 2007 by Bernard Reichen and Philippe Robert, it is one of the city's top spots for culture, hosting shows, concerts, exhibitions and festivals.
