Saint Germain des Prés
It was previously named Avenue du Bois de Boulogne.
Few districts of Paris have a past as rich as Saint Germain des Pres in terms of history and art. This very mixture is a part of the authentic French touch. Saint-Germain-des-Pres has always been a neighborhood whose mysterious charm continues to surprise and inspire many authors and creators.
This quarter is full of cozy famous cafés, bars and restaurants. As example, coffee Flore, Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp. These places were very famous points of animated debates between philosophers. Today, these coffees are still very reputed.
Saint Germain is the concentration of art and culture. The streets, often covered with the pavements, lead to numerous art galleries and antique shops and the autographs dealers (Cocteau, Verlaine, Wagner, Pagnol…), as well as booksellers… In this world of art two places are bringing our special attention: the Square Saint Germain des Pres and the famous Saint Sulpice Church.
