Monument : The Latin Quarter & St Germain des Pres
Saint Germain des Prés is unique because it elegantly combines fashion and culture. Cafes and jazz clubs of the St-Germain district became famous thanks to their writers and artists. At the end of the 19th century, Verlaine, Rimbaud and Mallarmé made the reputation of the cafés "Les Deux Magots" and "Le Café Flore". In 1925 they became the meeting point of surrealist artists but also of Picasso, Saint Exupéry or Hemingway.
Go for a walk along the boulevard and leave yourself to the romance of this area where ideas always bubble up.
This district often comapred with a village has a sturdy characte, customers who are always looking for new things rush to the shops of creators. But here, more than anywhere else, the Paris style finds its letters patent of nobility. Haute couture flirts with fashion creations and some people say there is even a St Germain style.
In the rue Bonaparte, there are art galleries, antique dealers decoration and fashion shops, all with various forms and colours which prove that creation and history can go perfectly together.
