If there is one area of Paris I never quite understood how it got to be what it is Les Halles. Sitting on top of the city’s main underground transport hub of Châtelet-Les Halles, for a long time, it felt more like a suburban shopping mall mixed with dirty streets and scary looking youths. After a long and expensive refurbishment, the place is coming anew. The Canopée, or canopy, is a large metallic dome covering the whole area, that became more spacious and better suited for Paris. It still feels busy and commercial, but hopefully, once the gardens are open the whole area will feel more welcoming.
