Not to be confused with the porte de Neuilly in the bois de Boulogne, or with the barrière de Neuilly in the mur des Fermiers généraux.

The Porte Maillot (also known as the porte Mahiaulx, Mahiau or Mahiot after a Paille-maille court, or the Porte de Neuilly[1]) is one of the access points into Paris mentioned in 1860 and one of the ancient ancient city gates in the Thiers wall.

It was on the boundary between the 16th and the 17th arrondissements, at the junction of the avenue de la Grande-Armée, the boulevard de l’Amiral-Bruix and the boulevard Gouvion-Saint-Cyr. It gives its name to the Neuilly – Porte Maillot railway station and Porte Maillot metro station.
