Official Site of the Twentieth (20th) Arrondissement


The twentieth is famous only for its magnificent cemetery – Père Lachaise, the final resting place for some well known names and thus a tourist attraction.

The district is otherwise a lively residential area with a friendly community feel. It has become popular with young families due to its commerce, its markets and the various parks.

To the south is the Nation district, which is a hive of commerce, cafés, markets and traffic. This popular starting point for demonstrations is also the Parisian gateway opening to the east.

It has equally good access to the ring road, Charles de Gaulle airport and the Bois de Vincennes Park.

Rents are comparatively inexpensive. There is a mix of traditional and modern architecture and is a popular option for first time buyers who would otherwise be priced out of the market. The 20th is, therefore, steadily becoming more and more gentrified.
