Latin Quarter of Paris

There are many corners of Paris that you can visit if you are going to be in this wonderful city, and we have also told you about many of them on this website. Today we bring one of the busiest and most well-known neighborhoods, the Latin Quarter, which is very close to the Notre Dame Cathedral and the truth is that it catches you well wherever you are. It is one of the neighborhoods that has the most life, especially at night, which is where both Parisians and tourists hang out.

There is nothing in particular that you should visit like the Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower or any monument that is a must in Paris, but it is wonderful to take a walk through its narrow streets full of bars, restaurants and cafes, which are also one of the cheapest in the city, something that is appreciated because it is not easy to find a good, beautiful and cheap place to eat in Paris . The Plaza San Miguel, the Church of San Severín and the Museo del Cluny are the most interesting places in the Latin Quarter.

It is also wonderful to take a walk around the entire area that borders the Seine River , with the Notre Dame Cathedral in the distance. You are probably thinking that its name comes from Latin, but it is not. During the Middle Ages, many university students who spoke in Latin lived in this area to be able to understand each other, so the name remained because of the Latin language and not because of the Latin blood.

For me, it is one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city, but I love visiting old medieval-style areas that, although they have advanced over time, still preserve that something so special that we like so much when we see it in some movie.
