Paris Latin Quarter Walking Tour / Guided tour of the Latin Quarter
Next to the Ile de la Cité and the majestic Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris is one of the most historic and iconic districts of Paris, the Latin Quarter. Often referred to as the student district because of the many prestigious Parisian universities found here, this little piece of Paris has so much to offer travelers looking for an authentic, historic, and bohemian experience. Walk on these magic narrow streets to discover the hidden secrets of this charming Parisian district.
In the historic heart of Paris, the Latin Quarter has been home to many generations of students for several centuries. Its name also comes from the many prestigious high schools and universities that are found in this district. Located on the left bank of the Seine, between Notre-Dame de Paris and the Luxembourg Gardens, the Latin Quarter is one of the most visited districts in the city. It’s renowned as much for its cafes as for its history and monuments, from the Pantheon to the Church of Saint-Sulpice.
Paris Middle Age Latin Quarter.
But since the Middle Ages, the Latin Quarter has built its reputation primarily on the schools that are located there. The Sorbonne, Assas, the Ecole Normale Supérieure on Rue d’Ulm, and the high schools Louis le Grand or Henri IV are all examples of the prestigious establishments found in the Latin Quarter.
Latin Traces in the Neighborhood.
This student tradition dates back to the 13th century when many colleges were founded in the neighborhood. This was the case, for example, of the college created by Robert de Sorbon in 1257, which would later go on to become the University of the Sorbonne. The name of the district also comes from medieval times. Latin was the only language used for teaching in all of these schools and universities.
