Musée d'Orsay - Saint-Germain-des-Prés - 6e Arrondissement

Description

Hurried or wondering passersby, traffic, light from the cafes, and busy queues outside the cinemas: this is what you will find in the Odéon district at any time of day. The crossroads open onto the Cours du Commerce Saint-André courtyard. With mismatched cobblestones, this passage is home to the vestiges of the Philippe-Auguste enclosure and, between shops and restaurants bristling with traditional signs, the Procope. Opened in 1688, the Procope is supposedly the oldest cafe in Paris! If you are looking for the Théâtre de l'Europe, formerly the Théâtre de l'Odéon until 1990, it is hard to miss! This temple from the Age of Enlightenment, which opened in 1792, shines in the centre of Place de l'Odéon. The theatre's programme puts the spotlight on European artistic heritage.
