The town center of Montreuil makes up 3 districts : Solidarité - Carnot, town center and Jean Moulin - Beaumonts.
The Montreuil town centre, around Mairie de Montreuil and last stop on the metro line 9, has recently been renovated. It now boasts a mall (shopping center), the cinema Le Méliès and the theater le Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil. The Parc des Beaumonts offers a green interlude with its natural paths, its varied fauna and flora. Many artists’ workshops, which can be visited during open house days, are located in this part of Montreuil.
