"Abelard, Anyone?" Latin Quarter Tip by mrclay2000

Latin Quarter, Paris: 47 reviews and 107 photos

  the Sorbonne
by mrclay2000

The University of Paris has been around roughly as long as the University of Bologna, reckoned the oldest college in Europe. Even though the present building is short of its sesquicentennial, the Sorbonne remains a prominent landmark across the street from the Musee de Cluny. With an extensive library, a voluptuous history, and a sidekick in the form of a rebuilt church which keeps Richelieu's remains, the Sorbonne is worth a peek by most (but a photo by all, for certain).
