Gare Saint Lazare is one of Paris oldest train stations. Built in 1837 to serve the Paris to Saint-Germain line. It is located in the 8th district (Arrondissement) of Paris.
The magnificent historic facade has already been restored. The respect for the architecture in terms of restoration is essential as the Gare St Lazare is inventoried to be a Parisian Historic Monument.
Location: 13, rue d’Amsterdam
Claude Monet immortalized the station in 1877 with his painting of the same name. In 1985, two works by Arman were added to La Cour du Havre and La Cour de Rome: L'Heure de tous (Everybody's Time) and Consigne à vie (Checked Luggage for a Lifetime) respectively.
The present building embraces the old structures and presents a 17th century Beaux-Arts style facade. The hotel Terminus is the most important example of an association between these two functions as it was built to accommodate travelers coming to the Universal Exhibition of 1889.
The first station at St Lazare was 200 m north-west of its current position, and it was called Embarcadère des Batignolles.
