Rue Mouffetard

Paris, France

Street name

Rue Mouffetard is a 660 yd long and 7 yd broad street in the 5th arrondissement (district), one of the oldest and liveliest in the city. Nowadays there are numerous restaurants, shops, cafés and a regular open market. This street was once a roadway along a flank of a hill called in the 13th century “Mont Cétard”, being "Mouffetard" a corruption of this name. It’s also been called rue Saint-Marcel, rue du Faubourg Saint-Marceau ("Street of the Suburb Saint-Marceau") and Rue de la Vielle Ville Saint-Marcel ("Street of the Old Village Saint-Marcel"). The origins of this thoroughfare are ancient, dating back to Neolithic times. The area remained relatively unchanged because of its location on the Saint Geneviève hill, losing only a little part in favor of Avenue des Gobelins with Baron Haussmann's redevelopment during the reign of Napoleon III (1808-1873).
