Courbevoie

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Hauts-de-Seine

Ville francilienne, Courbevoie is located in the department of Hauts-de-Seine, on the left bank of the Seine. In part occupied by the district of La Défense, it takes place only two kilometers from Paris, bordering Puteaux, Neuilly-sur-Seine, Nanterre or Levallois-Perret.

Hamlet of fishermen and winegrowers in the Gallo-Roman era, Courbevoie grew in the Middle Ages, becoming a dependency of the city of Colombes until the end of the eighteenth century. Transformed into a garrison town in 1730, its population doubled at the time, notably thanks to the installation of workers and businesses. Until the 19th century, the commune continued its wine production before definitively developing an industrial activity. The development of the district of La Défense ends up installing Courbevoie as an important economic city.

Modern and developed, the city of Courbevoie has a modest historical heritage that testifies to the past of the city over the centuries. Culturally developed, it also offers several events during the year.
