History

Before its integration into Paris in 1860, Chaillot village was home to many royal residences and aristocratic retreats. Its castle was thus located on the hill where Place du Trocadéro stands today. The oldest plan of Chaillot known to date is that of Saint-Victor, established in the 16th century. It features the large sewer, the seigneurial house, the bell tower of Saint-Pierre Church and the hill. After the annexation of Chaillot, Haussmann’s works almost entirely transformed the village, to the point of erasing even its vestiges.
