The Charonne quarter is an area of the 20th arrondissement of Paris named after a former municipality in the area, which was merged into the city of Paris in 1860 by Napoleon III. The historic centre of Charonne is located around the junction of Rue de Bagnolet and Rue Saint-Blaise, in the vicinity of the parish church of Saint-Germain-de-Charonne.

The metro station called Charonne, notable for the demonstration of 8 February 1962, is named after a street in the 11th arrondissement – Rue de Charonne, in the Bastille neighbourhood – and is not actually located in the district of Charonne, which covers the southern half of the 20th arrondissement.
