A short distance from the 15th arrondissement in Paris, the Place du Trocadéro is one of the city's main sites for major events. This is not only due to its central position, but also due to the its proximity to major Parisian monuments like the Eiffel Tower and the Palais de Chaillot.

The name Trocadéro refers to a fort reclaimed by the French army from Spanish revolutionaries in 1823, which was followed by a military parade aiming to re-enact the battle in front of King Charles X. A cardboard fort was built on Chaillot hill for the occasion, and the army came from the neighbouring Champ de Mars to mime the event. Today the site of the Palais de Chaillot, the Place du Trocadéro still has military connotations through its monument “À la gloire de l'Armée française” (Glory to the French Army) by sculptor Landowski, and is home to the Esplanade du Trocadéro with its magnificent view over the Eiffel Tower.

The 15th arrondissement

The 15th arrondissement, located next the 7th and 14th, is one of the largest in Paris. It is made up of four districts - Grenelle, Necker, Saint-Lambert and Javel. It’s also one of the arrondissements with the most squares and parks, including Square Saint-Lambert, home to the 15th arrondissement town hall, Parc André Citroën and Parc George Brassens.

Montparnasse Station

Straddling the 14th and 15th arrondissements, Montparnasse is one of the largest railway stations in Paris. The current station, built in the 1960s alongside Montparnasse Tower, features the Jardin Atlantique park plus imposing concrete architecture. The station, which historically connected Paris and Brittany, now serves much of western France, from Lower Normandy in the North to the Pyrénées in the South, and onto Spain.


The headquarters of UNESCO is one the most emblematic 1950s buildings in Paris. Created by architects Marcel Breuer and Bernard Zehrfuss, it occupies one of the two angles of Place de Fontenoy, located across from the Ecole Militaire. Inaugurated in 1958, it is the most international building in Paris. It has an impressive collection of original artwork from world artists such as Giacometti, Calder, Picasso, Moore and Miró.


The Beaugrenelle district is a dynamic area, a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower, the Motte-Picquet and the charming Rue du Commerce. Recently built and ultra-modern, the Beaugrenelle shopping centre has lots of brands on offer. It's the perfect place to take a stroll or hit the shops. 

Boulevard Garibaldi

Boulevard Garibaldi, home to Hotel Baldi, is located in the 15th arrondissement between the Boulevard de Grenelle and the Boulevard de Pasteur. It follows the route of the former Fermiers Généraux city wall built between 1784 and 1790, one of many that once surrounded Paris. Boulevard Garibaldi is named after the Italian general of the same name who fought alongside the French in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871.
