French term or phrase:le pavillon des fruits
les Halles du Forum ont abrite au rez de chausse le pavillon des fruits et les legumes
Located in the heart of Paris, the Forum des Halles is a park at ground level, a large underground mall, and below that, the world’s largest underground subway station. Surrounding the Forum des Halls are numerous shops and restaurants. The park is very popular among locals when the weather is friendly, and the shopping complex features numerous big-name department stores and eateries. An open-sky plaza sits in the center of an all-glass covering that pedestrians pass on their way to the restaurants, boutiques, cultural institutions, discotheques, museums and cinemas located on the underground level.
The Forum des Halles actually sits on the grounds of the famous old market Halles. For more than eight hundred years these grounds served as the central marketplace for Paris. As population increased over time, congestion in the area was inevitable. By the late-20th century the city was forced to relocate the hundreds of food stands and cafes to a suburban area called Rungis. Subsequently, with the huge marketplace gone, what was once the city’s most bustling area was now nothing more than a gigantic hole in the ground. Eventually, after several years, the city decided to turn the le trou des Halles (the hole of the Halles) into what we now know as the Forum des Halles.
