Saint-Germain-des-Prés is an area of the 6th arrondissement of Paris, France, located around the church of the former Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Home to a number of famous cafés, such as Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area was the center of the LI and later the existentialist movement (associated with Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir).


Many writers have written about this parisian district, with prose, Boris Vian, Gabriel Matzneff, Jean-Paul Caracalla or with japanese poetry Nicolas Grenier.
