La Petite-Ceinture (PC) is an abandoned, or some prefer to say, disused, railway line that used to circle Paris.­

The Petite-Ceinture line circles around Paris, hence the name "Small Belt".­ It was used for metro-type passenger trains until 1934.­ Since then, it is completely abandoned, made obsolete by the new underground metro lines, but most of the rails, tunnels and stations still exist.­ The line mostly runs in trench or overpasses, with a few tunnel segments.­
