In context : On the shoulders of giants in the Latin Quarter
(From : Square René-Viviani). Now leave the place through Lagrange street. The next stop is reachable quicker if you keep going on that street, then on Monge street in the continuation. But you also can make a recommended detour through the Paris of the Middle Ages by turning left into de l'Hôtel-Colbert street, then right into de la Bûcherie street, right again into Frédéric-Sauton street, then left into the nice Maître-Albert street up to de la Tournelle embankment where you will make a right-angle turn to the right into de Bièvre street until Saint-Germain boulevard which you'll take to the left. Finally, you will turn right again into des Bernardins street, leave by the Palais de la Mutualité, and find the Square Paul-Langevin.
This little public garden named after phycisist Paul Langevin, who was also a prominent member of the masonic lodge of the Grand Orient de France, has a huge bas-relief of masonic inspiration. It notably features a set square and a compass, the infinity symbol, and several branches of blackwood.
