Argentine is a station in west Paris that serves Metro Line 1. It is situated right on the boundary line between the 16e and 17e. Argentine has access points along Avenue de la Grande Armee and is in fare zone 1.
Rue Argentine was originally known as rue Obligado, which was named in celebration of a French-English victory over Argentina in 1845. After Argentina generously helped France by supplying shipments of grain and beef after the World Wars, the countries animosity faded and rue Obligado was renamed rue Argentina to commemorate the friendship. The station is simply named after the avenue.
The giant park Bois de Boulogne is located close by the Argentine station.
The arrondissement in which Argentine administratively lays, 16e, is also home to many sporting events including Paris SG football club at Parc des Princes, the French Open at Roland-Garros and Stade Francais rugby club at Stade Jean-Bouin.
