Jourdain is a station on line 11 of the Paris Métro in the 19th and 20th arrondissements.

The station opened as part of the original section of the line from Châtelet to Porte des Lilas on 28 April 1935. It is named after the Rue de Jourdain (French: Jordan Street), referring to a nearby church dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, who baptised Christ in the Jordan.
