  • It is the most celabre and well-known Universisad in Paris, which has a beautiful Baroque building dating back to 1200, when only theology was taught. It is named after Robert de Sorbonne, confessor of Louis IX and has different centers in the city. It was very exciting to see the place where the highest personalities of France and the world studied
