Quartier Latin

Furnished apartment in Latin quarter, Paris

The Latin in the area's name probably derives from the fact that it has been the university quarter since the medieval times, when Latin was the language of instruction. The district's long association with learning began in about 1100, when a number of renowned scholars, including Pierre Abélard, began to leave and teach on Montagne Saint-Genevieve, independant of the established cathedral school of Notre-Dame. The Paris schools attracted students all over Europe and 'colleges' multiplied, until the University of Paris was given official regognition with a charter from Pope Innocent III in 2015. Many of the narrow crooked streets ( like the Marais, the Latin Quarter was another part of Paris largely untouched by Haussmann) are charming, and there are some real architecturalglories, especially ecclesiastical ones.
