IMG 1372La Défense is a major business district of the Paris aire urbaine. It is centered in an orbital motorway straddling the Hauts-de-Seine département municipalities of Nanterre, Courbevoie and Puteaux. The district is at the westernmost extremity of Paris's 10 km long Historical Axis, which starts at the Louvre in Central Paris and continues along the Champs-Élysées, well beyond the Arc de Triomphe before culminating at La Défense.

La Défense is seen as comparable to Canary Wharf in London: both are spaces where "statements of corporate ambition can be made", without thereby encroaching on the historical quarters of the city. Around its 360 ft-high Grande Arche and esplanade ("le Parvis"), the district holds many of the Paris urban area's tallest high-rises. With its 77.5 acres, its 72 glass-and-steel slick buildings including 14 high-rises above 490 ft, its 180,000 daily workers and 37.7 million sq ft of office space, La Défense is Europe's largest purpose-built business district.

You will also find there the greatest shopping mall of Europe: Les Quatre-Temps.
