History

In the past, the Faubourg-du-Roule neighbourhood was a village grouping together three hamlets around Saint-Philippe-du-Roule church, in the current Place des Ternes and ville d’Evêque. These three small villages were united into one neighbourhood in 1639. The first reference to Village du Roule can be found in the charters of the 13th century. Around 1200, the Corporation of Coin Makers in Paris bought a house in this village to house and treat inhabitants suffering from leprosy.

Soon after, Paris’s former bishop authorised them to build a chapel. In the Middle Ages, the central road from Saint-Honoré church to Roule bridge was called Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and became Chemin de Roule. The Village du Roule, which then had two hamlets, was built along this road. In 1552, the Roule would represent at the same time a village, a neighbourhood and a parish built for the first time according to Truschet and Hoyau’s design.
