Nogent-sur-Marne is a commune in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 10.6km from the centre of Paris. Nogent-sur-Marne is a sous-préfecture of the Val-de-Marne département, being the seat of the Arrondissement of Nogent-sur-Marne.HistorySeveral origins of the name are proposed: Novigentum, "new people", i.e. prisoners brought by the Roman armies. Nov. indicates fatty or soaked grounds. Novientum which is the Gallic equivalent of medieval French "Villeneuve" or English "Newtown". In the Middle Ages, several castles were built. Le Château de Plaisance, built in the 13th century, which hosted Charles V and Jeanne de Bourbon in 1375. The only vestige which remains is a house of the current private hospital, 30 rue de Plaisance, as well as the bottom of the enclosing wall of the gardens. Le Château de Beauté sur Marne, 14th century, is a royal stay. Cardinal de Richelieu destroyed it in 1626.In the 17th century, whereas the rural population was made up of a majority of vine growers, the middle-class discovered the charms of the country, and settled in Nogent. Jean-Antoine Watteau lived in Mr. Lefevre's house his last moments and died there in 1721.Whether you only want to go to Nogent-sur-Marne, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly France travel route site.
