Interestingly, this neighbourhood, perched on the slope of a small hill, actually took its name from a French city.  Following the Prussian victory over French troops at the Battle of Metz in 1870, Bavarian entrepreneur, Charles Fix, opened a beer house on the hill.

As a result the name originated. In the past, when the area was unpopulated, it was also called Pantremenadika, the "Wedding Land", because it was the site of many  love romances. Today, beautifully restored, neo-classical buildings make up this neighbourhood that extends from the Ilyssos River to the First Cemetery. The municipality also created an impressive recreational grove for locals and visitors.
