Sully–Morland (French pronunciation: ​[syli mɔʁlɑ̃]) is a station of the Paris Métro on line 7 of the Paris metro, located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.

Location[edit]

The station is located under the Quai des Célestins, at the intersection of Boulevard Morland and Boulevard Henri-IV, near the Seine and the Pont de Sully. Oriented along a north-west/south-east axis, it is interspersed between the Pont Marie and Jussieu metro stations. Downstream of the station, in the direction of Mairie d'Ivry and Villejuif - Louis Aragon, the line makes a 90-degree bend towards the south-west and plunges under the Seine on a 40% slope towards Jussieu metro station.

History[edit]

Named after the Pont de Sully and the Boulevard Morland. The Pont de Sully commemorates Maximilien de Béthune, Baron of Rosny, Duke of Sully (1560–1641), friend and Minister to King Henri IV. It crosses the Seine to the Île Saint-Louis and the Boulevard Saint-Germain. The Boulevard Morland was named after Colonel François-Louis Morlan (called "Morland", 1771–1805), who was killed at Austerlitz, with his body being repatriated in a barrel of rum.
