Location of metro station

Porte de Saint-Ouen is a station on line 13 of the Paris Métro on the border of the 17th and 18th arrondissements. Unusually it has an escalator directly linking the platform to the street at the exit to the Rue Leibniz.

The station opened on 26 February 1911 as part of the Nord-Sud Company's line B from Saint-Lazare to Porte de Saint-Ouen. It was the teminus of the northern branch of the line until 30 June 1952 when the line was extended to Carrefour Pleyel. On 27 March 1931 line B became line 13 of the Métro. The station is named after the Porte de Saint-Ouen, a gate in the nineteenth century Thiers wall of Paris, which led to Saint-Ouen.
