The first inhabitants of Clamart date back to prehistoric times as indicated by the discovery, in the woods of Clamart, of the megalithic monument called La Pierre-aux-Moines. In the seventeenth century, Clamart is considered far from Paris. Jean de La Fontaine, heading to the Limousin, stops for the first night of his trip in Clamart and happy, he wrote to his wife, "having already made three miles without a bad accident." The town is rather well off and residential, close to the Paris-Montparnasse train station (7 minutes), destination of the trains from Western France, a fact many Britons have settled in the area the past centuries. The plateau of Clamart was long a farming area where the french peas were grown. The culinary qualification "a la clamartoise" means that fresh peas accompany a dish. Every year in June, Clamart holds its Pea Festival which is a pretext for numerous cultural and festive gatherings. This city is economically dynamic and reputable companies are located there including one of the three Research and Development EDF sites, the headquarters of Optic and, since 1967, the Coca Cola group is installed here. Its monuments and essential places to see are the Little Round Library and the City Hall. Clamart has many sports clubs (volleyball, table tennis, gymnastics, football, basketball, swimming ...). Good to know: On July 3, 1815, at the end of the Hundred Days war, a heavy fusillade ensued from Clamart with the English army placed on the heights, the first aerial photographs in the world, carried out by Nadar from a balloon in 1858, were the views of Petit Bicetre better known as Petit Clamart and finally the famous collection of short stories "Letters from my windmill" from Alphonse Daudet, were written during the 1865 stay of the author in Clamart.
