This has recently been opened to the public and I am thrilled. The magnificent church architecture is our of this world. And now it is a terrific art space. In one of the important parts of the city, the old college quarter.
Looking for a place to de-stress? This is the place... simply luxuriate in the restored medieval architecture and wonder at what was: a monastery, a school, a prison, a fire station, a residential school for the police academy, and now a place of learning and...More
We had a tour and corporate dinner and stunning space. Interesting tour at the beginning but not sure it is worth much more than an hour or so to visit as not much to see other than the stunning building.
We visited the College after touring St. Etienne du Mont Church and walked downhill here to visit it's modern art exhibition. There's a lovely cantine within the monastery. It's a social service project operated by Total.

The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
