Images – Bassin de la Villette.

You could easily describe the 19th as something of a melting pot, and like the 18th, there are areas of deprivation beyond the chic touristy haunts. One of the more salubrious parts of this arrondissement is a beautiful park (one of Paris ’s largest), the Buttes-Chaumont. It’s a popular destination for many Parisians, particularly families.

The 19th is also home to the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the largest science museum in Europe, the Cité de la Musique, a popular venue for music and arts events and the Paris Conservatoire, an internationally renowned training ground for some of the world’s most talented musicians and dancers. Property in the 19th is generally the least expensive in the city, at around 4500 – 5500 Euros per square metre*.

La Villette

Today, visitors come to what was once the village of La Villette to see the angular, much-publicized Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, a spectacular science museum and park built on a site that for years was devoted to the city’s slaughterhouses.


Mostly residential, and not at all upscale, the district is one of the most ethnically diverse in Paris, the home of people from all parts of the former French Empire

Les Buttes-Chaumont

A highlight is Les Buttes-Chaumont, a park where children can enjoy puppet shows and donkey rides. The park it filled with waterfalls and rocky caves.
