At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The legendary fountain in the Latin Quarter.

Commissioned by Haussmann under Napoleon III, the Saint-Michel fountain dominates Place Saint-Michel and is the ideal starting point for a tour of the Latin Quarter.

A monumental fountain (26m high and 15m wide), and inspired by the painting by Raphael in the Louvre, called Saint Michel terrassant le démon (St. Michael slaying the devil) painted around 1505. The painting represents the Archangel Michael slaying the devil, symbolizing the struggle of good against Evil.

The fountain in Saint-Michel is a regular meeting place for partygoers in the Latin Quarter, and many street performers present their shows in front of the fountain. Come join the lively atmosphere that reigns there!
