HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 29 July 1937 when Line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet (now called La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle). It is named after the Avenue de Ségur although the station is on the Avenue de Suffren and the Avenue de Ségur is 100 metres away. Marquis de Ségur (1724–1801) was a Marshal of France and Secretary of State for War from 1780 to 1787.

Places of interestEdit

The station is close to the UNESCO, the Avenue de Breteuil (a ceremonial avenue leading to the Invalides) and the École Militaire at the end of the Champ de Mars.
