Origin of the Latin Quarter’s name

In the historic heart of Paris, the Latin Quarter has been home to many generations of students for several centuries. Its name also comes from the many prestigious high schools and universities that are found in this district. Located on the left bank of the Seine, between Notre-Dame de Paris and the Luxembourg Gardens, the Latin Quarter is one of the most visited districts in the city. It’s renowned as much for its cafes as for its history and monuments, from the Pantheon to the Church of Saint-Sulpice.

Paris Middle Age Latin Quarter

But since the Middle Ages, the Latin Quarter has built its reputation primarily on the schools that are located there. The Sorbonne, Assas, the Ecole Normale Supérieure on rue d’Ulm, and the high schools Louis le Grand or Henri IV are all examples of the prestigious establishments found in the Latin Quarter.

Latin Traces in the Neighborhood

 This student tradition dates back to the 13th century, when many colleges were founded in the neighborhood. This was the case, for example, of the college created by Robert de Sorbon in 1257, which would later go on to become the University of the Sorbonne. The name of the district also comes from the medieval times. Latin was the only language used for teaching in all of these schools and universities. Join one of the Best Paris Walking tour.
