Journées du Patrimoine: 3. Le Siege du Parti Communiste

Oscar Niemeyer's Communist party headquarters building is fairly underwhelming from the exterior, but it is the interiors that are the real draw. Twisting and winding concrete corridors and undulating surfaces lead to mysterious corners and to a fantastic space age auditorium. As an additional bonus, you can also take a lift to the rooftop terrace for exceptional views across Paris.

Siège du Parti Communiste
2 Place Colonel Fabien 75019
Open Saturday and Sunday, 10am - 5.30pm
Note: A concert is programmed for the Saturday evening at 8.30pm in the auditorium. Entrance is free but tickets are strictly on a first come first served basis.
