Hauts-de-Seine

Hauts-de-Seine is a département in France. It is part of the Ile-de-France region.

It is small and densely populated and contains the modern office, theatre, and shopping complex known as La Défense with its modern Grande Arche.

Hauts-de-Seine was largely part of the Seine département until 1968. It and two other small départements, Seine-Saint-Denis and Val-de-Marne, form a ring around Paris, known as the petite couronne.
