History

Founded by monks, the town of Neuilly-sur-Seine began to develop after the construction of a bridge across the Seine. In the 16th century, Francis I built a residence there, the Château de Boulogne. It then took the name of Château de Madrid (Madrid castle) before it was torn down during the Revolution.

The name Saint-James refers to Claude Baudard de Saint-James, a wealthy financier of the18th century, who built a luxurious house in the neighbourhood. The Bagatelle-Saint-James district was, from its beginnings, linked to nobility and luxury, which can still be found in its streets today.
