Visit of the “Latin Quarter”

Developed around Sorbonne University from the Middle Ages onwards, the Latin Quarter is, still today, the center of student life. Nexus for the May 1968 student protests, this district is currently a favorite among tourists. From the Saint-Michel Fountain to the Lutèce Arena, via Sorbonne University, the Cluny Baths, the Paris Pantheon and Saint-Étienne-du-Mont Church, come discover a lively district with a thousand-year history!

Saint-Étienne-du-Mont: The magnificent Saint-Étienne-du-Mont Church combines the flamboyant Gothic style of architecture to that of the Renaissance.
Within the church and the cloister’s gallery can be seen the most beautiful collection of antique stained-glass windows in Paris, second only to the Holy Chapel. The church also houses Saint-Geneviève’s casket, Paris’ patron saint.
