The Batignolles

A short walk to discover the Batignolles district

The Batignolles district is located in the 17th arrondissement. It is undergoing a major transformation, the old railways have been replaced by many apartment buildings with contemporary architecture. This very peaceful area that looked like a small village is changing very quickly. You can see it by walking through the Batignolles Square and then continuing to the new Martin-Luther King Park. The Batignolles district is not in the tourist tour, but it's nevertheless worth a visit.
