Saint-Germain, the Latin Quarter

In the past, philosophers, authors, actors and musicians have been mixing in nightclubs and the brasseries in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Today the Latin Quarter goes on attracting all types of intellectuals. Thus artists from any country come here  looking for inspiration around Les Deux Magots, the Café de Flore or the rue de Seine and its galleries.

Saint-Germain-des-Prés has become one of the most representative fashion area in Paris: luxury signs have found their way around the 17th century buildings.
