Europe, France, Paris

Chevaleret is an elevated station of the Paris Métro serving line 6 at the intersection of the Rue du Chevaleret and the Boulevard Vincent Auriol in the 13th arrondissement. The station opened on 1 March 1909 with the opening of the original section of line 6 from Place d'Italie to Nation (although part of line 5—some dating back to 2 October 1900—was incorporated into line 6 on 12 October 1942). It is named after the Rue de Chevaleret, a street that already existed in 1670, and was named after the locality, which in turn was probably named after its owner. Nearby are the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital and the Ministry of Finance.
