The Porte Maillot and its history
Located at the limit of the 16th and 17th arrondissements, Porte Maillot is precisely located at the intersection of Avenue de la Grande-Armée, Boulevard de l'Amiral-Bruix and Gouvion-Saint-Cyr. Under Henri II, the Porte Maillot was an integral part of the eight gates that the Bois de Boulogne enclosure contained. This axis allowed the exit from Paris to Neuilly. At that time, the name for it was "Mahiaulx";, then "Mahiot". In 1931, to redevelop the place, which extends the Champs-Elysees fromthe Etoile to La Defense, the works had to pass through the Porte Maillot. A new aerodrome was setup with two aerostats, one of which was a tethered balloon. There was a remarkable accident withthe tethered balloon when one cable ruptured in July 1904. Fortunately, there were no victims.Today, this part of the capital of France is a major intersection and interchange with six to eight lanes of traffic.
