Bourg Sainte-Geneviève, in 1450 (Atlas historique de Paris):





We go across the river, to left bank, which was called "the University" in the middle ages. There again, the medieval architecture is practically absent nowadays.

For example, the College Sainte-Barbe, founded in 1460, was until its closure in 1999 the oldest of Paris (now it is a library), it underwent several restaurations since the beginning of the 17th century and even was rebuilt in the nineteenth.
One of the oldest college of the University is the Collège des Dix-huit, founded in 1180. As for many colleges it was combined with the Sorbonne and destroyed when the Sorbonne was rebuilt.

The Sorbonne in 1550:

The chapel built in the early 17th century:

Rue Saint-Jacques, is a prehistoric road, reputed to be the oldest of Paris, the cardo of Lutetia, the main street of medieval Paris. The Sorbonne is on the left:

On the right is the Lycée Louis-le-Grand, that covers the site of several earlier colleges like the Collège des Cholets.

Collège des Cholets, founded in 1295. Here are the remains in 1820 (destroyed two years later):

Another example of a building destroyed in the 19th century:

The Cloître des Carmes (watercolors by Victor-Jean Nicolle), before their destruction in 1811:

Collège de Fortet, founded in 1394, was luckier. It remains a part of the 14th century building, known as Tour Calvin.

In 1839:

Rue d'Écosse (12th century), takes its name from the Scottish students who lived in the area between 1333 and 1603. By the way, there is a rue des Irlandais nearby and the Irish are still there.

Tour "Clovis" is all that is left of the Church of Sainte-Geneviève, the basis dates from the 12th century and the upper part from the 14th. It is now integrated in the Lycée Henri IV.

Rue Clovis, Lycée Henri IV. The high school stands over Carolingians remains and cellars of the 13th century. It was the site of an abbey, instituted in 506, dedicated to Sainte-Geneviève, patron saint of Paris.

The refectory of the abbey (13th century), now a chapel:




The cloister dates from the 15th century but was restored in 1744.

Rue des Carmes was called rue du Clos-Bruneau in 1317, that name remains in Passage du Clos-Bruneau, an adjacent lane that existed before the 13th century. Rue Valette, already existing in the 12th century, is in the axis of rue des Carmes, closer to the Pantheon. # 19-21, has gothic cellars but I can't find any picture of them.

This is the Passage du Clos-Bruneau. It is not a cul-de-sac, at the end there are stairs going down to rue des Écoles.

Rue Jean de Beauvais, dates from the beginning of the 14th century. Here was the College of Beauvais, one of the leading school in France by 1700, the chapel of Saint-Jean (14th century) survived the destruction and is now a Romanian orthodox church.
