History

Founded in 1330, the city first bore the name of Boulogne-la-Petite, in reference to Boulogne-sur-Mer where a pilgrimage dedicated to Marie was highly prized, the aim being to offer the same kind of services, but closer to Paris. It became Boulogne-sur-Seine after the Revolution. In 1859 its merger with Billancourt took place. It was not formalised until 1926 when the city took the name of Boulogne-Billancourt.
The République-Point du Jour district was an industrial district with several factories and film studios. It currently houses several corporate headquarters, including those of TF1 and Canal +.

  • Immaculée-Conception Church: In 1834, a chapel of the same name was built less than a kilometre from the present church. It was destroyed in a bombing during the Second World War. Rebuilt, it disappeared definitively in a fire in 1966. L’Immaculée-Conception Church, as we know it today, was built in 1948.
  • The new cemetery of Boulogne: This is the largest cemetery in Boulogne-Billancourt. Close to the Seine, it was regularly flooded, earning it the nickname “aquatic cemetery”. It nevertheless continues to welcome visitors, and allow famous Boulonnais, including the sculptor Paul Landowski, to rest in peace.
