On the Left Bank, in the vicinity of the University founded in the 12th century, Latin was the language most commonly spoken by professors and students..

This tradition seems to have died out but the name remains..

Around the Sorbonne, the Collège de France, prestigious schools and the Sainte-Geneviève library, there are still numerous bookshops, publishers, and cafés, where students revise for their exams, as well as tiny art-house cinemas..

Of course, the Saint-Michel fountain is not only a meeting point for students, many businesses have now moved into the area, but the memory of Professor Abélard and the paving stones of May 1968 still remain..
