Avenue de Wagram

Avenue de Wagram

Avenue de Wagram is one of the 17th arrondissement’s major arteries. This part of the “Plaine Monceau” has a more classical character than the "Haut de Wagram". It is also more residential. An ideal place to dine is at 123 avenue de Wagram: the Costes group’s La Compagnie, which boasts a cuisine halfway between bistro and gourmet. The renowned Pierre de Ronsard College is established at number 140.
Rue Jouffroy d'Abbans

Rue Jouffroy d'Abbans

This begins at Boulevard Pereire and ends at Avenue de Wagram. Until recently, it was called rue Jouffroy, and often confused with Passage Jouffroy which is in the 9th arrondissement. Opened in 1862, it was named two years later after the inventor of the steamboat. At 103 - 107, rue Jouffroy d'Abbans, passersby can admire an extraordinary ensemble of Art Nouveau-style freestone buildings designed by architect Théo Petit in collaboration with sculptors Henri Bouchard and Binet. On the ground floor of one of these buildings is the capital’s oldest chocolate manufacture: A la Mère de Famille.
Place de Wagram

Place de Wagram

Surrounded by five identical buildings, pentagonal and 70 meters wide, Place de Wagram is an architectural gem in the purest Haussmannian style. It is located at the junction between boulevards Malesherbes and Pereire, and Avenue de Wagram. It offers beautiful apartments and is keenly sought-after.
Boulevard Malesherbes

Boulevard Malesherbes

In 1800, Lucien Bonaparte decided to open an avenue between the Madeleine and Monceau, a decision confirmed eight years later. In 1824, Louis XVIII decided to give it the name of his brother, Louis XVI’s counsel for the defense. The construction of this boulevard led to the disappearance of many private mansions, and notably in rue d'Anjou. At number 8 was the first Church of the Madeleine, founded in 1238, which had an adjoining cemetery. Demolished in 1798, it was replaced by the current Madeleine, built from 1764 to 1842. This boulevard is mainly lined with luxurious freestone buildings with 5-room + apartments. It extends from La Madeleine to Porte d'Asnières, crossing Place de General Catroux.

In an elegant Art Deco private mansion at 114 bis (formerly the Hotel Allard de Chollet), the Ecole Normale de Musique draws students from all over the world, as does the prestigious Lycée Carnot at n° 145, formerly Monge school founded in 1869. It became Lycee Carnot on December 28th 1894.
