In context : To the Grands Boulevards and beyond
(From : The Poussette Café). Now let's start a promenade in the 9th district : take Pierre-Semard street and successively turn left into de Bellefond street, right into de Rochechouart street, and left again into Condorcet street. After a while, make another turn left this time into des Martyrs street, then turn right into Navarin street where you'll come across the Amour hotel, several rooms of which have been designed by renowned artists such as, for example, Sophie Calle. Continue by turning left into Henri-Monnier street then right into Notre-Dame-de-Lorette street, until finding Chaptal street. You're now in the neighbourhood nicknamed the "Nouvelle Athènes" (new Athens), because of its neoclassical architecture. On Chaptal street is also the Museum of Romantic Life - how appropriate in such a neighborhood, isnt' it ? At the end of the same street, take Blanche street on your left (southbound) up to de la Trinité church. You will pass by a fire station (at number 22-28, Blanche street) where you'll see... vine arbours ! Go around the church and take de Londres street until d'Amsterdam street which you'll take to the right up to your final destination.
One of the few (along with Arts-et-Métiers) interesting subway stations in Paris, this one is famous for its ceramic frescos. It also has staggered platforms, which is quite rare in Paris.
The station used to be called "Berlin" prior to World War I. Renamed after the nearby rue de Liège, it was refurbished in 1982 and given its ceramic decorations made in Welkenraedt, Belgium, which evoke the landscapes and monuments of the Province of Liège.
