The present church is the second building on the site, erected over a Romanesque church originally constructed during the 13th century. Additions were made over the centuries, up to 1631. Although Notre Dame was constructed in the 13th Century I found St. Suplice a more elegant structure - less stone, more light.

You may notice the beautiful fountain outside but also take note of the towers! They do not match each other. Because of the Revolution, the work to restore/redesign the towers was interrupted and the work did not continue hence the towers look quite different in size and style. The art inside is magnificent. Beautiful architecture as well. The organ is... More

With the fountain out front and the nuns walking the grounds, I have to say that Saint Sulpice was one of my favorite churches. A lot less mainstream that Notre Dame but seriously worth it. Right in the middle of the Saint Germain neighborhood. Overwhelming beauty and history.

I just love this fountain in spring or summer, it's in a nice surrounding near the Luxembourg park and where you can find many shops and the famous Pierre Hermé. Be sure to have and ice cream by the fountain on a sunny day 😀

Second in size only to Notre Dame Cathedral in the Paris area. Magnificent architecture inside and out. Much history here. The pipe organ is renowned as one of the best in the world. And, the position of Organ Master is one of the most sought after positions for an organist. On Sunday after the 1100h Mass an organ concert is... More

It is an interesting designed church from outside. The great things about this church are the paintings in the chapels, the high ceilings, the chapel of the virgin Mary with its dome and fresco, and a great wooden organ. At the moment there is a nativity scene. There is some good stone work, though some parts of the chapels need... More

First, The Church of St. Sulpice contains a grand pipe organ. If possible, check to see if the Sunday Organ Concert will be held while you are in Paris. if so, this is a wonderful experience. One of the best organs in Europe, and a free concert. I would also suggest a visit during the day. You can see the... More
