What was once the municipal morgue is now a vast space dedicated to all things artistic and fun. There is food for both the spirit and the stomach here: theater, dance, music, visual arts, as well as a gourmet grocery, cafes and restaurants. Along with concerts and dance parties for grown-ups, there are activities for families and little ones (musical events, art workshops, and so forth). If that’s not enough, you can also shop for bargains in the Emmaüs shop (a charitable organization that sells wonderful used thingsknickknacks and furniture) or browse at the bookstore.
