Example text

No. 6 was a butcher shop in the 18th century, which you can surmise by looking at the two mammoth bulls in bas-relief on the facade. Although a recent restoration and a coat of bright gold paint make the bulls look brand new, the building dates from the 18th century. Straight ahead on your left is place de la Contrescarpe, an animated square bordered by several large cafes. Located right outside the city gates, this intersection naturally became a favorite rendezvous of rowdies and merrymakers in the Middle Ages.

This tour begins and ends in the 19th-century Latin Quarter, but along the way you’ll follow in the footsteps of the ancient Romans, whose roads defined the early neighborhood. You’ll explore the web of streets around the St-Julien-le-Pauvre and St-Severin churches; they recall the life of medieval scholars and trace the later development of the neighborhood in the fine facades of 16th-, 17th-, and 18th-century houses. Don’t be discouraged by the crush of visitors along rue de la Huchette and rue de la Harpe.

St-Médard. The first church was probably built here in the 7th or 8th century at the intersection of rue Mouffetard and the Bièvre river (see Part I of this tour). Destroyed by the Normans, it was rebuilt in the 12th century as the parish church of a market village, a character it has retained despite renovations and extensions that began in the 15th century and ended at the turn of the 20th. In the 18th century, it became the scene of a strange collective hysteria when a Jansenist deacon was buried in the cemetery (now the front square).
