Croix de Chavaux is a station on line 9 of the Paris Métro, at the crossroads called Croix de Chavaux.

The station was opened on 14 October 1937 with the extension of the line from Porte de Montreuil to Mairie de Montreuil. The "chavaux" in the name of the crossroads is probably a corruption of the French "chevaux" ("horses"). The "croix" (French for "cross) may be a reference to the crossroads or to a wayside cross.
