Discover the Parc de Montsouris district - Paris 14

The Parc de Montsouris district is the 54th administrative district of the city of Paris and is part of the 14th arrondissement. It is bordered to the north by Boulevard Saint-Jacques, to the south by Avenue Paul Vaillant-Couturier, Avenue Pierre Masse and Avenue du Doctor Lannelongue, to the east by Rue de la Santé, Rue de l’Amiral Mouchez and Avenue Pierre De Coubertin and to the west by Rue de la Tombe Issoire, Rue Emile Faguet and Rue du Professeur Hyacinthe Vincent.



Along with the districts of Montparnasse, Petit Montrouge and Plaisance, the Parc de Montsouris district is one of the four districts that make up the 14th arrondissement of Paris. This district and its neighbourhoods were created in 1860 when the city of Paris decided to incorporate part of the commune of Gentilly. The district takes its name from the park there, and until 1937 was called La Santé.

Cultural sites

  • The Montsouris reservoir: also known as the Réservoir de la Vanne, the Montsouris reservoir stands between Avenue Reil, Avenue René-Coty, Rue Saint-Yves and Rue de la Tombe Issoire. When it was built between 1868 and 1873, it was the largest reservoir in the world. Its red brick architecture alone is worth a look.
