SAINT-GERMAIN-DES-PRÉS YESTERDAY AND TODAY
Located between the 6th and the 7th arrondissement, Saint Germain des Près is like no other area of Paris. The magnificent Haussmanian buildings give it a classical air, while its lively, enduring and iconic places, such as Deux Magots and Café de Flore, which both award prizes for literature, help perpetuate its tradition as the home of intellectuals.
THE DEUX MAGOTS
The Deux Magots prize was created in 1933, in opposition to the Goncourt prize which was considered to be too academic. Its first winner was Raymond Queneau, who was unknown at the time. Ever since, the Deux Magots' prize in January is the first of the year's literary awards.
CAFÉ DE FLORE
Since 1994, Le Flore, that famous literary café where Guillaume Apollinaire and André Breton liked to meet and which the unusual Sartre-Beauvoir couple made their headquarters, has awarded the Flore prize to a young writer.
After night fall, the clubs and bars of Saint-Germain-des-Près are famous for jazz, which continues until dawn.
