Gentilly is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 4.1km from the center of Paris.NameThe name Gentilly was recorded for the first time in the 6th century as Gentilly, a royal estate of some importance where coinage was minted. The etymology of the name seems to be "estate of Gentilius", a Gallo-Roman landowner. However, some other researchers think that the name is connected with Latin gentilis (meaning "gentile", "pagan", "foreigner") in reference to foreign goldsmiths who may have settled in Gentilly in the Early Middle Ages.HistoryOn 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. On that occasion, about half of the commune of Gentilly was annexed to Paris, and forms now the neighborhoods of Maison-Blanche and Glacière, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.On 13 December 1896, about half of the remaining territory of Gentilly was detached and became the commune of Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, leaving Gentilly with about a quarter of its pre-1860 area.CultureThe famous photographer Robert Doisneau was born in Gentilly (April 14, 1912). There is a Maison de la photographie Robert Doisneau an international cultural center for humanist photography.Add Gentilly and other France destinations to your travel plans using our France travel planning site.
