Year round, events punctuate the seasons: exhibitions, outdoor movies, theater, dance, circus shows, summer performances, workshops, etc. Opposite the Cité de la Musique, the Fontaine aux Lions de Nubie is one of the few remains of the slaughterhouse era in Paris, together with the Rotonde de la Villette and the Grande Halle. A former watering place, the fountain is now enjoyed by visitors who come to cool down on hot summer days. Next door, the huge Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie invites the public to discover scientific and terrestrial phenomena. The Géode and the Cinaxe complex will not disappoint.
