Louise Michel is a station on Paris Métro Line 3. It is located in the commune of Levallois-Perret, northwest of the capital.

History[edit]

Louise Michel was opened on 24 September 1937 when the line was extended from Porte de Champerret to Pont de Levallois – Bécon. It was originally called Vallier, after a mountain (2839m) in the Pyrenees near the Val d'Aran. It was renamed on 1 May 1946 to Louise Michel, in honour of the French anarchist and communarde.
