Place Blanche in Paris, France is one of the small plazas along the Boulevard de Clichy, which runs between the 9th and 18th arrondissements (Parisian districts) and leads into Montmartre. It is near Pigalle. During the Paris Commune of Spring 1871, this was one of the countless areas where barricades were erected by the Communards to repel Adolphe Thiers's Versailles troops as they pressed westwards to retake the capital.

During the 1950s, the Place Blanche was a centre of Paris' transsexual community, documented in Christer Strömholm's book Les amies de Place Blanche.
