Place Monge (Paris Métro)
Place Monge (French pronunciation: [plas mɔ̃ʒ]) is a station on Line 7 of the Paris Métro, opened on 15 February 1930 as part of a planned section of the line, which was temporarily operated as part of Line 10 until the completion of the under-Seine crossing of Line 7 from Pont de Sully. This former arrangement can still be seen at the north of the station where a non-revenue track diverges on the left, leading to Cardinal Lemoine (now on Line 10). The station was integrated into Line 7 on 26 April 1931.
