If I could give it a zero I would. Sorry Mr. Mandela, but you would be ashamed of this place, and to have his name attached to it. He stood for the people, unity, and freedom. We went there on two separate occasions, both times...More

We went today and found the older kids’ Playground closed. No signs, no explanation. Very disappointed kids (and mum) after quite a long, hot walk. We went to the shopping centre at Les Halles instead...

Looks like this will be a lovely play area for the kids when it is completed. I believe that I sign I read anticipated completion in April 2018. Now you can walk through it on pathways around the construction.

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
