Location of metro station

Saint-Augustin is a station that serves Line 9 of the Paris Métro, named after the Place Saint-Augustin and the Saint-Augustin church. The station opened on 27 May 1923 with the extension of the line from Trocadéro.

After the extension of Line 14 to Saint-Lazare opened in 2004, the station is connected to Saint-Lazare metro station (which is near Saint-Lazare railway station) by a long underground passageway. This allows interchange to Line 14 as advertised on RATP maps. There is also connection to Lines 3, 12 and 13 via the Line 14 platforms, but under normal operating conditions these connections are not useful and are not indicated on RATP maps.

Church[edit]

The current Saint-Augustin church, built in 1868 by Baltard, replaced an old chapel which was also dedicated to St Augustine (354–430).
