The church and fountain has an impressive external overall scale. Whilst the sheets of water from the tiers of the fountain are mesmerising, the dark interior of the neo-classical church is bruding, with huge frescoes in each bay, i is bruding and far more impressive....More

This is a great fountain with statues and stone lions. I particularly like the expression on the lions. There was no water running today though.

We took a quick photo stop here before entering the St Sulpice church for a visit. The square was relatively peaceful and not much of a crowd.

The St Sulpice Fountain is the large decorated central monument in St Sulpice Square (in front of the Cathedral). A quick but decent photo stop, in a relatively peaceful square.

A classic Parisian square with a beautifully decorated fountain. A good place to sit for a few minutes during your Paris tourist tour.

This fountain and plaza are beautiful! A little off the beaten path, but worth a look! The church is huge and needs some work but is interesting to see. Spend some time watching the lions of the fountain and enjoy being in the sunshine!

Another beautiful cathedral. Our guide pointed out the window which, on a certain day of each year, sunlight illuminates a brass line running across the floor to an obelisk on the far wall. The church organ is supposed to be one of the best sounding.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
