Revamping a train station into a market place Nice, France

by Keiran Pais,

The historic "Gare de Sud" in Nice, France once a train station known for its architecture of the 19th century inspired by the work of Gustav Eiffel has been transformed from housing busy, working crowds to relaxed locals and tourists. The whistling sounds of the trains have now given way to popular french music.

You enter the portals of this market through the original entrance of the railway station. As you enter, you will notice that the waiting and ticketing rooms are converted into a library and many exhibition spaces. The main attraction is the food court located in the train shed. It caters to the taste buds of all nationalities and cultures. It is also a shoppers paradise where artisan and french designers sell their wares.

A unique feature to this market is a charity store where one can deposit clothes, utensils and other used items for the lesser privileged. The more you venture into this unique market the more captivating it gets.
