Quartier Hopital Saint Louis - Paris 10


The district owes its name to Saint-Louis Hospital, built at the beginning of the 17th century on the orders of Henri IV due to the capital’s plague epidemic. It is named after Louis IX, in memory of this king who died during the Crusades in 1270. Today one of the largest in the capital, the hospital specializes in dermatology, haematology and oncology. Between 1937 and 2006, many parts of the hospital were classified as historical monuments.

Cultural sites

  • Saint-Joseph-Artisan Church: formerly a 19th century chapel, the church became a parish in 1958. Built between 1865 and 1866 by the architect Lucien Douillard (who also designed the Saint-André-de-l’Europe church), it displays a neo-gothic style.
  • Canal Saint-Martin: linking the Villette basin to the Seine, this waterway stretches over almost 3 miles. Due to the recession in France between 1809 and 1815, its construction was not completed until 1825.


Local landmarks

  • Saint-Louis Hospital: first an annex of the Hôtel-Dieu where plague patients were treated, this establishment gave its name to the neighbourhood where it is located. Today, it is also a university hospital employing around 2,500 people.



  • Jardin Villemin: located on the site of the former Villemin military hospital, this large park covering 5 acres is the perfect place for a stroll. In addition to cherry, birch and apple trees, it is also possible to spot small decorative shrubs such as Mexican orange trees, hibiscuses and rosemary bushes.
  • Square Eugène-Varlin: along the Saint-Martin canal, this discreet garden allows visitors to admire one of its locks. In the middle of rhododendrons, hydrangeas and many other plants, it is even possible, with a bit of luck, to see a boat that has just passed through the lock.
