Saint-Denis - Porte de Paris is a station on line 13 of the Paris Métro in the commune of Saint-Denis. The station has a flat roof supported by beams. Its walls are decorated with white tiles used for advertising, especially for sports tournaments at the Stade de France.

The station opened on 26 May 1976 when the line was extended from Carrefour Pleyel to Basilique de Saint-Denis. It was later renovated for the opening of the Stade de France to enable it to handle large flows of passengers. It now has a large hall with many gates to channel large crowds using the station to attend events at the Stade de France.

Nearby are the Stade de France and the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire.

In 2014, the station became the terminus of Île-de-France tramway Line 8.
