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.

What a great place to sit and people watch. Great sculptures and street art is eye candy, and sometimes there are street performers. All just next to the Pompidou Center. And just a few blocks away on St. Martin Street is the Monsieur Benjamin Art...More

The Stravinsky Fountain is a collection of brightly coloured, whimsical pieces of art spewing water. They fountain is enjoyable to view. If you are in the area of the George Pompidou Centre, then be sure to stroll around the fountain.

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
