Place de la Nation in Paris

Explore it during your stay at the Best Western Allegro

Place de la Nation is in the 12th arrondissement of Paris and is part of the Picpus and Sainte Marguerite neighbourhoods.
Formerly called “Place du Trône” (Square of the Throne) and then “Place du Trône renversé” (Square of the Toppled Throne) following the Revolution, it was given its current name, Place de la Nation, to mark France’s national day, 14 July, in 1880.
This historic and politically-important site is home to two columns and a central monument, Le Triomphe de la République by sculptor Jules Dalou: the symbols of Justice, Peace, Labour, Liberty, Plenty and the Republic are borne aloft by a chariot sculpted entirely from bronze and pointing towards Place de la Bastille, thereby creating a republican route often taken by public protests!

Today, Nation is quite a trendy residential district of Paris, with lots of shops nearby, a tempting market on Cours de Vincennes, regular bric-a-brac sales on Avenue du Trône, and numerous Parisian brasseries.

For your travel needs, Place de la Nation is well served by public transport, including four metro lines (Nation station) and RER line A, bringing every neighbourhood in Paris within striking distance! Explore this iconic neighbourhood during your stay at the Best Western Allegro in Nation
