Quartier des Ternes - Paris 17


In the Middle Ages, Ternes village was only a modest hamlet surrounded by forests and wetlands. A royal hunting area, this zone remained devoted to the leisure activities of the powerful men until the Revolution and the abolition of privileges. The neighbourhood’s name comes probably from the term “villa externa” (a farm outside the city) that became “Ternes” over time. This fortified farm was originally Ternes old castle. Like the rest of the 17th arrondissement’s neighbourhoods, Ternes became part of Paris in 1860.
