Mairie des Lilas
Location within Paris
The line 11 platforms opened as part of the extension of the line from Porte des Lilas on 17 February 1937. It is named after the town hall of Les Lilas. A small underground depot is located near the station to service the trains of Line 11.
The station is sometimes believed to be the subject of the Serge Gainsbourg song "Le Poinçonneur des Lilas", about a Métro ticket inspector, but the promotional film for that song was filmed at the Porte des Lilas station.
