Walk in Montrouge

Walking around Montrouge in the Paris suburbs: what a funny idea!

You can walk on trails in the Alps, walk along the beaches of the Atlantic but when you don't have time to travel far you can also visit the cities of the Paris suburbs. Let's visit Montrouge, a town in the southern suburbs with its metro station. Its proximity to the capital is its main asset and one can even add its only asset. The city does not have much charm and the new urban planning work has not improved things, quite the contrary. If you want to take a nice walk on a beautiful Sunday a tip: do not go to Montrouge.

The place Jean Jaurés

The place Jean Jaurés
The square has just been renovated with the great urban renewal program of Montrouge. The place is not even finished but the cobblestones already feel dirty and have been there for 20 years.

The town hall of Montrouge

The town hall of Montrouge
Like many mayors, our elected officials want to be proud of their mayoralty. It is often the most beautiful building in the city. One wonders, however, what are still the purpose of these buildings, in the air of the digitalization of administrative documents.

Urban renewal

Urban renewal
The work, which lasted more than a year, led to the construction of a petanque area!

Downtown

Downtown
Very long street, it is the most commercial artery of Montrouge, the photo speaks for itself. At the bottom you can see the cemetery.

The aisle of thirst

The aisle of thirst
This street was quickly renamed the driveway of thirst after the works, the absence of shade and the reverberation of the sun on the new cobblestones make the place particularly unpleasant. Plus there doesn't seem to be a bike path.

The High Street

We love the automobile in Montrouge for what it brings to the public finances.

The restaurant "general hardware" is quickly full as soon as a ray of sunshine appears.

It is a conference and concert centre. One of the major events is the guitar festival held in March. In 2020 the two headliners will be Dick Annegarn and Axel Bauer!

Credit Agricole

Credit Agricole
Crédit Agricole wanted to build a campus with the idea of Apple's, something young and modern. As Crédit Agricole is in France he did not invest too much money and he asked the town hall to develop a square and privatize the street. This was done with taxpayers' money.

The U.S. Square

There are not many green spaces in Montrouge. The town hall has just renovated the square with a playground for children, there are so many people that children have to queue for the slide.
