Panthéon - Sorbonne
The Quartier Latin is situated between the Left Bank of the Seine in the 5th arrondissement and the north and east of the 6th arrondissement, with the Sorbonne as its historical centre. Its name derives from the fact that only Latin was used at the schools and universities in the neighbourhood during medieval times, and the area remains to this day mainly one of schools, universities and lycées. Among the most well-known are the École des Mines, the École Normale Supérieure, the Lycée Henri-IV, the Lycée Louis-le-Grand, the Sorbonne and the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. There are also traces of the Roman occupation, such as the Arènes de Lutèce and the Thermes Romains. If you are looking for a luxury apartment to rent or a town house for sale in this highly-prized neighbourhood, you will immediately be seduced by the quartier latin and its charming streets.
