History

The origin of the name of the Plaisance district is uncertain, it could be linked to the presence of places of pleasure in the district from the 18th century or to the name of a castle that stood there. The creation of the district dates back to the important building sites of the city of Paris in 1840, small housing estates were built between the Chaussée de Vanves and the old Moulin-au-Beurre roads leading to the beginning of the Plaisance district.
