The Sevres - Lecourbe station is located in southwestern Paris' 15e. It serves metro line 6 in fare zone 1.
This station, along with four others, has elevated tracks which allow travelers to take in much of Paris as the metro crosses the Seine. The station's name is derived from the ancient "Barriere de Sevres" which was a point on the Wall of the Farmer's General that allowed across into the Sevres district of Paris. The second portion is named after General Claude Joseph Lecourbe who fought in the French Revolution.
Close by the station in the 15e are the Rive Gauche and Montparnasse districts. It is also by the Front de Seine high-rises near the Eiffel Tower.
The main businesses near Sevres - Lecourbe are the Porte de Versailles expo center and the Rive Gauche district, which is now an up and coming business neighborhood.
