About Tuileries

  • Transit Lines: Paris Metro Line 1
  • Terminus For Lines:

Tuileries (French pronunciation: [tɥilʁi], lit. tile factories) is a station on Paris Métro Line 1, situated in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Like most stations on Line 1, Tuileries station lies on an east-west axis (l'axe historique) from La Défense in the west to Vincennes in the east. Specifically, it is located underneath Rue de Rivoli near the Jardin des Tuileries, for which the station is named. Like most Paris Métro stations, Tuileries has two tracks with two side platforms. It was the ostensible setting of one portion of the film Paris, je t'aime in which an American tourist (Steve Buscemi) waiting at the station becomes involved in the conflict between a young couple. In fact, the scene was filmed at the closed Porte des Lilas—Cinema metro station.
