Place Emile Male in Paris

This small and unnoticed area in Paris is actually located by the Arenes de Lutece Roman Arena in the Latin Quarter of the city and was named after a historian.

About the Place Emile Male

It was back in the 1970s that the city of Paris decided to name a square, or place as it would be referred to, after the academic and historian Emile Male who had resided in Paris for many years.

Eventually, at the beginning of the 1980s, the site chosen was a very small place that is located at a junction by the Rue de Navarre and the Rue des Arenes in the historical Latin Quarter of Paris.
One of the reasons for the site chosen was due to the fact that Emile Male resided in a property on the Rue de Navarre for many years.  But the second is due to the fact that this area provides an entrance to the Arenes de Lutece, which is the Roman amphitheatre in Paris, which is actually quite fitting considering he was a historian.

Yet, apart from a name of the Place Emile Male, there is very little to see here bar traffic, unless of course you want to enter the Roman Arena, and spend a little time in relative peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Visiting the Place Emile Male

This square in Paris is situated in the 5th Arrondissement within the Latin Quarter and the Saint-Victor area, and as we have mentioned before, it is right by the Arenes de Lutece. But also within walking distance of the Jardin des Plantes.

Now when it comes to getting here, the nearest Metro stations are either the Place Monge stop via line 7 or the Jussieu stop via lines 7 or 10, however, the bus number 47, 67 and 89 will also get you close by.
