Saint-Maurice is a commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 6.8 km (4.2 mi) from the center of Paris. The insane asylum Charenton was located in Saint-Maurice; it is now a psychiatric hospital.
Originally called Charenton-Saint-Maurice, the name of the commune was officially shortened to Saint-Maurice in 1842.
In 1929, the commune of Saint-Maurice lost half of its territory when the city of Paris annexed the Bois de Vincennes, a part of which belonged to Saint-Maurice.
