Metropolitan II / Porte Dauphine Metro, Paris, France

An image of the entrance to Porte Dauphine Metro Station in Paris France.

 

The station contains one of the three remaining "dragonfly" roofed Métro entrances by Hector Guimard (1867–1942), the Art Nouveau architect who was originally commissioned by the Compagnie du Métropolitain de Paris (CMP) in 1899 to design the entrances for the Métro stations.

 

It is the only roofed entrance that is original, not reconstructed, and on its original site. It was restored in 1999.

 

I love Art Nouveau, and the Paris Metro, so I had to visit here! I have also previously been to one of the others at Abbesses, so I have the set now.
