History

This neighbourhood takes its name from the golden-white wine produced in the small hamlet of La Goutte-d’Or, which is related to the municipality of La Chapelle. During the 19th century, it attracted provincials wishing to settle in the capital for work. Small apartments and furnished hotels were built. Then, as time went by, the neighbourhood began to welcome migrants from all over the world, starting with Belgians, Italians and even Spanish. Then, from the middle of the 20th century, the Maghrebi and Sephardic community began to settle here. Finally, after the arrival of African, Chinese and Portuguese populations, about 30% of the population was originally from another country in 1999.
