Quartier Batignolles - Paris 17


Initially, Batignolles were the property of the blessed women in Montmartre, and were used as a hunting reserve by royal officers. After the Revolution, the area became a small village. In 1830, this village and the one of Monceau obtained their independence from Clichy town and formed Batignolles-Monceau municipality. It was attached to Paris in 1860. This annexation led to the neighbourhood growth. For a long time, it remained popular and has been undergoing gentrification since the 2000s.
