La Garenne-Colombes

La Garenne-Colombes is a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 9.6km from Notre Dame de Paris which is the center of Paris. It is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe.NameThe city used to be part of the neighbouring city of Colombes. At this time, before 1910, it was called "La Garenne de Colombes", which means "Colombes' Garenne". "Garenne" is French for "warren", so the English for "La Garenne-Colombes" could be "Columbia's warren" or "Warren of Columbia" ; yet the official translation of the name of the city is just "La Garenne-Colombes".The explanation for the city being called "warren" is that it really used to be a warren where people would hunt. But this dates back to the French Royalty, at the 18th century or so.GeographyLa Garenne-Colombes is usually simply called "La Garenne", and nicknamed "petit Neuilly".SurroundingsFour towns surround La Garenne-Colombes: Colombes (North), Bois-Colombes (East), Courbevoie (South) and Nanterre (West).
