As you walk the cobblestone streets of the Latin Quarter, you learn to spot the architectural clues that a building dates back to the Middle Ages. Visit the Sorbonne and the Hotel de Cluny, a 14-century monastery turned Museum of the Middle Ages, famous for The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. You see the ornate tower from the 16th-century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie and visit the Renaissance-style Fountain of the Innocents (Fontaine des Innocents).
