Visionary international-style architect Le Corbusier redefined urban living in 1952 with the completion of his vertical 337-apartment ‘garden city,’ popularly known as La Cité Radieuse. Today it is mostly private apartments, plus a hotel, Hôtel Le Corbusier, the high-end restaurant Le Ventre de l’Architecte and a rooftop terrace. Architecture buffs can book guided tours (adult/child €10/5) that include a model apartment; contact the tourist office. It’s about 5km south of the centre along ave du Prado.
