History

Saint-Fargeau was annexed to Paris around 1859, after the incorporation of Charonne and Belleville into the capital. The district takes its name from a park, the last vestige of the Saint-Fargeau castle that once belonged to Louis-Michel Lepeletier de Saint-Fargeau. This castle is also called the Ménilmontant castle.

Cultural sites

Built in 3 years (between 1862 and 1865), a steam engine had to be installed to pump and convey the water from the Ménilmontant reservoir to it.

Local landmarks

  • Réservoir du Ménilmontant (Ménilmontant Reservoir): One of the main reservoirs of Paris, it was built in 1865 by Eugène Belgrand. Located near the Telegraph, it has a storage capacity of around 95,000 m3. Today it is supplied by the Joinville-le-Pont treatment plant and supplies 15% of the Parisian population. It is located at the highest point of Paris to ensure a better redistribution of water.

Parks

  • Square Emmanuel-Fleury: The lush vegetation of this space allows visitors to relax among the poplars and their silvery foliage, cherry blossoms, a gigantic sequoia and a magnificent tulip tree.
  • Square Séverine: This park is named after the writer and journalist Caroline Rémy, whose pen name was Séverine. Created in 1933, it was, however, renovated in 2017, which made it possible, among other things, to redo the driveway and enlarge the lawns.
