Bercy (Paris Métro)
The selectable maps and pictures within this page present information about Bercy (Paris Métro). Bercy is a station of the Paris Métro, serving lines 6 and 14 at the intersection of the Boulevard de Bercy and the Rue de Bercy in the neighbourhood of Bercy and the 12th 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). The line 14 platforms were opened on 15 October 1998 as part of the original section of the line from Madeleine to Bibliothèque François Mitterrand. It is named after the streets it is situated in and the neighbourhood of Bercy, which is mentioned in a document written in 1134. Over the centuries the Lords of Bercy built a castle there which eventually covered a third of the commune of Bercy, which was absorbed into Paris in 1860. It was the location of the Barrière de Bercy, a gate built for the collection of taxation as part of the Wall of the Farmers-General; the gate was built between 1784 and 1788 and demolished in the nineteenth century.
