Located between the meadows and gardens, the Grande Halle is the historic and emblematic building of the Parc de la Villette, recognisable by its exceptional metal and glass architecture. Formerly the ox market hall of the Villette, it has been renovated and now hosts shows, trade fairs and large-scale cultural events.

Renovated in 2005, this former hall for cattle is classified as historical heritage and is now a centre of cultural and social diversity, modelled on la Villette.

Today, we can find there an eclectic line-up of festivals, live performances, films, exhibitions and concerts!

Come and discover Grande Halle De La Villette's cultural line-up!
