The Latin Quarter of Paris (French: Quartier latin, IPA: [kaʁtje latɛ̃]) is an area in the 5th and the 6th arrondissements of Paris. It is situated on the left bank of the Seine, around the Sorbonne. Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments besides the university itself, such as the École Normale Supérieure, the École des Mines de Paris, Panthéon-Assas University, the Schola Cantorum, and the Jussieu university campus. Other establishments such as the École Polytechnique have relocated in recent times to more spacious settings.

  • You need to buy books in French? In the Quartier Latin you will find everything you need! Several bookstores Gilbert Jeune, separated by subjects. Paradise for lovers of good reading, as well as restarantes ecõnômicos and cozy, not to mention that we're minutes from Notre Dame and Plaza San Michel!

  • This is an old Latin quarter with medieval houses in the Gothic style. The atmosphere in this quarter is very impressive.
