There are numerous art deco Metro stations throughout Paris, but only two original Guimard Art Nouveau Metro Stations are left. One at place Dauphine and another at Abesses in Montmarte (moved from Hotel de Ville in 1974). Most of the original Guimard stations were destroyed until preservationist saved these in the 1970's. Built circa 1900, they were constructed with cast iron and bronze. Designed by famed architect Hector Guimard, these ornate entrances were opened to coincide with the 1900 World Fair in Paris.
