Anvers is a station on Paris Métro Line 2, on the border of the 9th and the 18th arrondissements in Montmartre.
The station was opened on 21 October 1902 as part of the extension of line 2 from Étoile. It was the eastern terminus of the line until its extension to Bagnolet on 31 January 1903. The station is named after the Place d'Anvers and the city of Antwerp.
The station is located under the Boulevard de Rochechouart, which was built on the route of the Wall of the Farmers-General in order to enforce the collection of taxation between 1784 and 1791 but demolished in the 19th century. Anvers is only station on line 2 between the Charles de Gaulle—Étoile and the Nation stations that is not built on the site of a gate of the wall, which became important intersections and thus, logical places for stations.
