History

The Montparnasse district was named by students in reference to Mount Parnassus, home of the Muses in Greek mythology. It became a hive of intellectual and artistic effervescence in the Roaring Twenties. Many artists and intellectuals chose to settle in this area in the 1920s following the Universal Exhibition of 1889. The Montparnasse district went on to become the home of artists such as Pablo Picasso, Guillaume Apollinaire and Ernest Hemingway.
