Paris Travel Planner   Latin Quarter, Paris, France
They spoke Latin around the University of Paris (Sorbonne) in medieval times. The name has survived into the modern age, even though speaking Latin has not.




The university district on the Left Bank just east and north of the Panthéon in the center of Paris is still sometimes called the Latin Quarter, even though you won't hear Latin spoken.

Instead, you're liable to hear every other language in the world spoken as students from around the globe come here to study, visit or just hang out.

Looking for student cafés, clubs, performances, lectures, art exhibits? Look for the Panthéon on the Paris skyline, and make your way there.
