Passy Neighborhood History

  • The Passy neighborhood takes its name from Passiacum which means “Land of Pacius” and it was dominating the Seine from 1250.Thanks to Philippe le Bel who signed a prescription in 1312 that appears the name of Passy. This prescription gave the right to three hundred blinds to wear a fleur-de-lis to distinguish them from others blinds. The king’s counsellor, Claude Chahu, decided in 1666 to build a church in order that the Passy village will become independent and that will not be attached anymore to the Auteuil’s one. Then, the village was known thanks to the discovery of hot springs (Passy’s dock and Rue des eaux) in 1719 until 1785, date on which they were less and less exploited. At this time, it was only fields and houses have been started to be built since 1825. And then, the village was attached to Paris in 1860 and started to become a neighborhood of the city.
  • Several houses of this district were place of gathering like the castle of La Muette which went from different owners before that Marie- Antoinette, the last queen of France, leaved there from 1770 to 1786, or the castle of Passy.
  • A number of personalities lived in that district too like Jean Jacques Rousseau, the composers Puccini and Rossini, the banker Benjamin Delessert, the writer Honoré de Balzac. He actually lived there several years and we can still visit his house (Maison de Balzac, 47 rue raynouard).
  • Thus,the Passy district, within the 16 neighborhood, a large part of France history and Paris’ history was written. The Hotel Passy Eiffel is now part of this heritage from more than 50 years.
