If you are thinking of exploring the delights of the rue Mouffetard in Paris then you could do worse than start in this church at the bottom of the hill near Les Gobelins. Its late Gothic nave fits remarkably well with those marvellous and unusual Doric clumns of the remodelled eighteenth century choir.

At the very bottom of the lengthy Rue Moufetard, Saint Medard is an attractive mixture of late gothic and early classical styles which surprising work beautifully together. It's not huge, but it feels like a much loved neighbourhood church, and so has a quality of the 'real Paris' about it. A peaceful place for pause after working your way down... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
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.
