Address
Neighborhood: Saint-Germain-des-Prés
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.

We had a walking tour in this area and learned a lot about the important history. Lots of landmarks, mostly religious. For a long time this area was outside the walls of the city and controlled by the Church.

A historical area
Oct 2019
Saint Germain des Pres Quarter is a very special and in some ways, historical quarter of Paris. There are some good museums and some lovely cafes, like Le Procope, where intellectuals used to meet in days gone by. Philosophers, poets, artists and the like. It is an interesting part of the city to wander around.

Great vibe
Aug 2019 • Couples
Saint Germain area has really great vibe. All cafes, bars and restaurant. In sunny days, this is really cool place to be. Just walking around, sit outside of a restaurant and just look around.

Unassuming outside, magnificent inside Church
May 2019
Located in Église de Saint Germain des Prés Quater, this is the oldest standing church in Paris. The exterior of the church is typical of early Paris with an unassuming exterior and a magnificent interior. Another beautiful Paris church that gives visitors a sense of peace and tranquility. If you enjoy churches and beautiful things, visit Église de Saint Germain des Prés.

Site of Paris' oldest Church
Dec 2019
Adjacent to the Latin quarter, while strolling along the Seine bank with many vintage books sellers you're about to enter the Saint Germain quarter.
This is a very lively area with tons of restaurants, cafes and shops and some of them were famous writers' hang out place, like the Flore where Hemingway used to go.
The same name Church is considered to be the oldest in Paris, dating back to 6th cent with a very rich interior.

Eglise de saint-germain-des-prés
Nov 2019
It is the oldest still standing church (built in the 6th century) in the city of Paris. Part of it was under renovation, but I got beautiful pictures of this beautiful church.
