With the world-famous Louvre in view just across the Siene, this is one of the most historically rich artistic centers on earth. Besides housing the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts-one of the oldest, most accomplished, prestigious art schools in the world-Saint-Germain-des-Près is home to some of the city's most-storied galleries, where masters showed everything from sculpture to paintings to performance works. This was also one center of the Fluxus movement in the 1970s, a discipline Galerie G-P still champions. Paris is arguably one of the most important artistic centers in the world and this is the timeless creative center of the city.
