History

Originally, Montrouge was a commune divided into two parts, the Grand-Montrouge, which is now the commune of Montrouge, and the Petit Montrouge, which became a district of Paris when the 14th arrondissement was created in 1860. Also known as the “Alesia district”, the Petit Montrouge district takes its name from its geographical origins and the commune of Montrouge.

  • Catacombes de Paris (Paris catacombs): these former underground galleries were transformed into a municipal ossuary at the end of the 18th century. They took the name “catacombs” in 1861, in reference to the underground necropolises of ancient Rome, although they never served as burial sites. They are 1.7 km long and can be visited.
  • Saint-Pierre de Montrouge Church: located at 82 avenue du Général Leclerc, this neo-Romanesque church was built between 1863 and 1872 on the plans of Joseph Auguste.
  • Pont sur la Petite Ceinture: the project of “La Petite Ceinture” was born during the second part of the 19th century. Now abandoned, the 32-kilometre long railway line around Paris is still visible in some places, notably in the Petit Montrouge district.
