The Maillot Gate

The origin of the name

Do you happen to know the origin of the Porte Maillot name? It's quite a funny story, very french like, so we will tell it to you...

The name would be linked to the memory of a popular uprising of 1382, the revolt of Maillotins during the reign of Charles VI. Armed with mallets, called “maillet” in French, they presumably left the Route de la Revolte which began at Porte Maillot. Then they joined Montmartre to welcome the King of France, in order to protest, among others, against fiscal oppression.

The place was once spelled Mahiaulx Gate, Mahiot and Mailhau.

Geographical situation and future

Porte Maillot is located on the borders of the 16th and 17th arrondissement of the capital.

It constitutes an interchange between the Boulevard Périphérique, the Arc de Triomphe (Charles de Gaulle Etoile) and La Defense.

This place is served by the line 1 of the metro, the RER line C, several bus lines and the noctilien. By 2022, it should change its face with the development decided on the occasion of the extensions of the T3 Tramway and the RER E. It is among other things to make it a public square of metropolitan dimension. It would also ensure the continuity of the green spaces of the green belt.
