Latin quarter in Paris

Between the St-Michel and St-Germain boulevards and the Seine lies the St-Séverin district, one of the oldest areas of the city; its large medieval streets are clearly visible around the Roman cardo of St-Jacques street. Its name derives from the language spoken there at the time when it was the exclusive seat of the Sorbonne and the College of France.

In this district there is the Cluny Museum: this keeps Gallic and Roman exhibits, rich collections of medieval craftsmanship and a collection of superb tapestries. Behind the Sorbonne we run into the Panthéon, the Temple of the Nation which keeps the spoils of some illustrious people including Rosseau, Mirabeau and Victor Hugo. The Latin quarter is an area full of life: it is rich in bars, small restaurants and old shops selling second-hand books and cheap clothes.

Those visiting the Church of Notre Dame can reach the Latin quarter by crossing one of the following bridges: Pont Au Doble, Petit Pont, Pont Saint-Michel. Descend to Cluny-Sorbonne or Saint-Michel with the Metro; it is better to use line 10 to reach the Pantheon, using Maubert-Matualitée or Cardinal-Lemoine station.
