Guided tour of the Latin Quarter
The Hotel de Cluny

The Hotel de Cluny

After the evocation of the Roman period at the Baths of Cluny, we see the founding of the University of Paris in the Middle Ages, one of the oldest universities in Europe. The Latin Quarter (with the Sainte Geneviève Mountain) concentrates all the colleges intended to train
theologians and students. The most prestigious are the College de
Sorbon, now the Université de la Sorbonne, the College de France and the College des Bernardins.

The small medieval streets of the Saint-Séverin district have retained much charm and will lead us to Saint-Séverin Church, a masterpiece of
Gothic architecture. The names of the surrounding streets recall the very ancient presence of illuminators, booksellers and printers. We will comment the most beautiful civil building dating back to
medieval times : the Hotel des Abbés de Cluny.
