This is Paris's most famous fountain! There's not another one like it! It features Saint Michael (Saint Michel in French) killing the Devil at the centre and dragon-like creatures on the edges. It's quite beautiful tbh

This fountain has long been a popular meeting place in the middle of the university quarter on the Left Bank. Built by Haussmann as a monument at the beginning of Blvd. Saint-Michel. Pretty. Lots of good book stores nearby.

This is something often missed when in Paris but don't discard it, the fountain is worthy of making the effort to see it and is comparative with those dotted all around Piazzas in Rome.

As others noted, gorgeous. Walk through the Latin quarter but this monument is worth a stop...then cross the river to the palace buildings.

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this
