Visiting the Cité internationale means embarking on a beautiful architectural journey. Constructed after the First World War in order to instil peace and bring together young people from all over the world, the Cité internationale has 43 pavilions in very different styles. As you walk around, look at the motifs on the façades to guess the country behind it!
Managed in a sustainable way with attention paid to the water usage and the protection of local flora and fauna, the Cité internationale’s park houses a rare biodiversity: 17% of the Parisian flora, including 94 tree species, is a true record! Discover the richness of this biodiversity as well as the practices put in place to protect it.
