One comment on “Villejuif”

My town is a suburb of Paris, a city that has become too expensive for normal people to live in. Villejuif is so called because it was the name of the Roman villa that the original town was established around. It is also interesting that the first mayor of Villejuif was passionately anti-clerical and priests were not allowed to wear cassocks in public. Villejuif is a blue-collar town that is very diverse, which is one of its most appealing aspects. Traditionally, the mayor has been communist, which is the same for the other southern suburbs of Paris. Following the most recent local elections, Villejuif’s new mayor is from the Green Party. Tourists coming to Paris sometimes find lodging in Villejuif because it is on a metro line, but cheaper than staying in the city. In all honesty, it is not an especially pretty town, but it is much more liveable than Paris.
