Location of metro station

Maubert–Mutualité is a station on line 10 of the Paris Metro in the 5th arrondissement. It is in the heart of the Latin Quarter and Paris' Left Bank.

The station is covered in white tiles like most other stations of the Métro, and uses a barrel vault that runs lengthwise over the tracks and platform. However, it is unique in that near the center of the platform two parallel tubes of moving orange lights trace the curve of the vaulted ceiling over the tracks from one side to the other.

The station was opened on 15 February 1930 with the extension of line 10 from Odéon to Place d'Italie (now on line 7). It is named after the Place Maubert (Maubert square) and the nearby Maison de la Mutualité.
