Place Saint-Michel, Paris: 10 reviews and 29 photos
The Quartier Latin has a large amount of students as inhabitants because of the Sorbonne university and other institutions of higher education. The area is named this way because from the Middle Ages till the Revolution the communication between students and professors took place in Latin.
A popular meeting point and landmark is the Fountain of Davioud at the Place St Michel, just after crossing the Seine by the Pont St Michel, coming from the Ile de Cité. The bronze statue made by Duret is depicting St Michel killling the dragon.
Quartier Latin is a lifely area with bookshops, restaurants and bistros. Most of the time I am in Paris, I visit this area.
Directions: The Quartier Latin lies in the 5th arrondissement and in a part of the 6th arrondissement at the southside (left bank) of the Seine.
