The 18th Parisian arrondissement (French arrondissement des Buttes-Montmartre ) is one of 20 Parisian arrondissements . It covers a substantial part of the former municipalities of Montmartre and La Chapelle and the village of Clignancourt , which were incorporated into Paris on January 1, 1860.

The arrondissement is characterized by the Montmartre hill and in the east by the extensive track systems that lead to the train stations in the south in the adjacent 10th arrondissement , the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l'Est .

A two-kilometer long viaduct of Métrolinie 2 with four stations, which has crossed the above-mentioned railway lines since 1903 , is visually dominant .
