History of the Place Monge, the Metro and the Rue Monge

The Saint Christophe hotel is ideally located near Place Monge

Marking the limits of the area Jardin des Plantes, the Rue Monge resulted from the extensive remodeling of the former Place Maubert during the 1920s. This area is rich in Gallo Roman remains. The Montagne Saint-Genvieve is the site of their leisure activities-theatres, amphitheatres, Arena and the main Roman Baths. Today remain only the Thermes de Cluny and some vestiges of the Arena, both interesting sites. Haussmann’s influence is felt in the Quartier Latin as seen in the Place Monge which shows architectural remodeling from this period. The importance of the Quartier Latin as a historic centre of Arts, Philosophy and Sciences can be seen in the names of Metro Stations, Roads and Squares. The name Monge is an example if this.
