Quartier Saint Vincent de Paul - Paris 10


The neighbourhood takes its name from Vincent de Paul, canonised founder of the Congregation of the Mission. In the Middle Ages, the area was home to the Saint-Lazare enclosure, a leper colony. This 32-hectare property then became the mother house of the congregation in the 17th century and remained so until the Revolution. In the 19th century, the landscape of the area changed drastically with the construction of the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est in the 19th century.

Cultural sites

  • Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Church: inaugurated in 1844, on the site of the Saint-Lazare enclosure, it was built by Jean-Baptiste Lepère, then by his son-in-law, Jacques Hittorf. Today classified as a historical monument, its facade combines several styles and its interior is richly decorated.
  • Théâtre des Bouffes-du-Nord: designed by architect Émile Leménil, this theatre opened its doors in 1876. It changed owners several times and even became a music hall during the First World War. It was given a new lease of life in 1974 before being classified as a historical monument in 1993.


Local landmarks

  • Gare du Nord: built by the Compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord, it was inaugurated in 1846 to link the north of France and neighbouring countries. However, judged too small, it was rebuilt and its stone façade moved to Lille. The new station, with a surface area of 36,000 m2, was opened to the public in 1864.
  • Gare de l’Est: located near the Gare du Nord, this second station was built in a neoclassical style to serve the east of the country, and inaugurated in 1849 under the name of the Strasbourg landing stage. In 1883, it was from this station that the famous Orient-Express set off for the first time.
  • Hôpital Lariboisière: Conceived following the cholera epidemic of 1832, this hospital opened its doors in 1854. Registered as a historical monument in 1975, it is named after Countess Élisa de Lariboisière, a philanthropist who, upon her death, donated a large part of her fortune to build a hospital.



  • Square Aristide-Cavaillé-Coll: formerly known as Square Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, it was laid out in 1862. Classified as a historical monument, it stretches over one of the highest grounds in the 10th arrondissement. It was named Aristide Cavaillé-Coll a few years ago as a tribute to this renowned organ builder.
