Rue Saint-Dominique

The Rue Saint-Dominique is a street in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. It was formerly known as Chemin de la Longue Raye (1355), Chemin des Treilles (1433), Chemin Herbu (des Moulins 脿 Vent) (1523), Chemin de l'Oseraie (1527), Chemin du Port (1530), Chemin des Vaches (1542), Chemin de la Justice and Chemin des Charbonniers. It was renamed Rue Saint-Dominique in 1643 after the Dominican monastery set up a few years earlier near the eastern end of the street (now absorbed by the Boulevard Saint-Germain), whose only remnant is the 脡glise Saint-Thomas-d鈥橝quin on the Place Saint-Thomas-d鈥橝quin (called Place des Jacobins until 1802, after the Dominicans).

In 1670, Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes was born at number 33, the H么tel de Luynes. It is now destroyed.
