A walk in western Paris: Nanterre old town center

A new thread around La Défense, this time at 3 km of the Grande Arche.
Nanterre is prefecture of the Hauts de Seine departement, the municipality hosts a signifiant part of la Defense Seine Arche business district.
It is also known for some unfamous housing projects, which have had some tough time in the 1980's 1990's but what is less known is the small old town center of Nanterre.

While this historic town center is smaller than the one of Saint Denis, Versailles or Saint Germain en Laye, it is still bigger than most municipalities in Paris suburbs.
Before being absorbed by the Paris urban area, most suburbs where small villages.
This explain the small size or even the non-existence of the most suburban old towns.

Why is Saint Denis mentioned twice?

Why Saint Denis is mentionned twice ? Because, I wanted to write Saint Germain en Laye instead of Saint Denis.

I love these threads! This is much more interesting than the same pictures of touristic places in the centre over and over again. I realy appreciate this.
