(The other is at Abbesses.)
The Porte Dauphine station was inaugurated on 13 December 1900. At the time, Line 2 had only been completed as far as Charles de Gaulle – Étoile. It now runs from Porte Dauphine around the northern part of Paris, through Montmartre, around to its eastern terminus at the Place de la Nation.
