Meet up in front of Danton!!

The statue stands firm amongst the wave of passers-by at the Carrefour de l’Odéon..

☆ Odéon ☆

People greet one another, find their way around, some in a hurry, others sauntering by, traffic, café lights and snaking queues in front of cinemas keep this neighbourhood buzzing at all hours..

The entrance to the Cour du Commerce Saint-André opens onto the crossroads..

This cobbled pedestrian street houses the remains of the ancient city wall of Philippe-Auguste, and amidst the profusion of old-style shop and restaurant signs stands the Procope..

Opened in 1688, it is perhaps the oldest café in Paris..

It was the first to serve ice creams to its clients, who included Diderot, Rousseau and Voltaire..

If you are looking for the Théâtre de l’Europe – Théâtre de l’Odéon until 1990 – it’s difficult to miss: this temple from the Enlightenment period, inaugurated in 1792, is the stunning centre piece of place de l’Odéon..

Its programme of events represents an important part of European artistic heritage..
