Avron

Local nameAvron
Location11th arrondissement of Paris, France

Avron is a station on Paris Métro Line 2, on the border of the 11th and 20th arrondissements.

The station was opened on 2 April 1903 when the line was extended from Bagnolet to Nation. It is named after the Rue d'Avron, which is named after a small nearby plateau that served an important role in the defence of Paris in the Franco-Prussian War. It was the location of the Barrière de Montreuil, a gate built for the collection of taxation as part of the Wall of the Farmers-General; the gate was built between 1784 and 1788 and demolished in the nineteenth century.
