The Quartier of Saint-Germain-des-Prés is situated in the 6th district of Paris. The Church of Saint Germain is all that is left of the great abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés which was, one of the most important intellectual centres in the France of the 17th century.This quartier has a typical parisian atmosphere - intellectual, elegant and relaxed. After the 2nd World War, Saint-Germain lived its golden era. Saint-Germain is a village within a city, with its brasseries, libraries, music shops and night clubs, where entertainment was provided by artists, intellectuals, authors, poets and musicians. The most famous characters who emerged from Saint-Germain are Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Boris Vian. Near the universities of the Latin Quarter, the Parisian youth gathered underground to listen to the banned music of jazz and bebop. The contemporary theatre developed here, just after the liberation of Paris. Nowadays, Saint-Germain-des-Prés is still a magical little gem that shines brightly in Paris; with its galleries, its cafés and publishers, its literary prizes and its origins and history. The Café du Flore, Les Deux Magots and the Brasserie Lipp form a “Golden Triangle” of intellectual life on the Boulevard Saint-Germain on the Left Bank. All of the most influential personalities find themselves here, be they politicians, journalists, artists or writers.
