Porte Dorée (Paris Métro)
|Paris Métro station|
|Location||12th arrondissement of Paris|
|Opened||5 May 1931|
The station opened on 5 May 1931 with the extension of the line from Richelieu–Drouot to Porte de Charenton for the Paris Colonial Exposition, held in the nearby Bois de Vincennes. It is named after the Porte Dorée, a gate in the 19th-century Thiers wall of Paris.
An interchange with Île-de-France tramway Line 3a opened on 15 December 2012.
Nearby is the Palais de la Porte Dorée, an exhibition hall built for the Paris Colonial Exposition. The Cité nationale de l'histoire de l'immigration (a museum of immigration history) and an aquarium are located in the building. The nearby Pelouse de Reuilly (part of the Bois de Vincennes) is the location of the Foire du Trône fun fair in April and May.
