La Grande Mosque EvryÉvry (pop 51,000) is a new town in Paris’s suburbs that was created in the 1960s. It is one of the youngest towns in Paris- both in terms of the town’s age and the average age of its population. There is not much here in terms of sights, but you can pop by the Grand Mosque of Évry [20 Rue Georges Brassens, +33 160771419] – one of the largest in France, as well as the Cathedral Resurrection [Place des Droits De L’Homme du Citoyen +33 164978521 http://bernard.lecomte.pagesperso-orange.fr/cathedrale-evry/] - a cylindrical-shaped, lime-tree crowned brick cathedral  that was designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. Évry is also home to numerous parks that are lined with many walking and biking trails.
