Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web
The former center of the existentialist movement associated with authors like Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Saint Germain des Pres Quarter is now a swanky upscale neighborhood. Situated on the Seine River, this area is also an artistic hub, with many prestigious museums, art galleries, and small workshops. The district offers excellent people watching while sitting at one of the many outdoor cafes. You'll know you're in the right neighborhood when you see the famous Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés; built in 990 CE, it’s home to one of the oldest bell towers in France.
