Abbesses Metro Entrance

Montmartre & Northern Paris

Designed by art nouveau architect Hector Guimard, Abbesses' wrought-iron, glass-canopied metro entrance is Paris' only remaining Model A entrance, and one of only two dragonfly entrances left in Paris (the other, a Model B entrance, is at Porte Dauphine, 16e).
