Saint-Sulpice

We visited Saint-Sulpice, a Roman Catholic church located in the 6th arrondissement. The façade of this holy Romanesque building is made up of balustrades, towers and stone sculptures. The erected towers seen in the picture below are part of the west side of the church. This was added onto the original Romanesque church constructed in the 13th century.

The calmness and serenity inside is hard to describe. I don’t know if it’s because I read too many supernatural books or watch too many horror movies, but it feels safe and peaceful inside, like no evil harm can be done on you. At least I’d like to think so.

  1. That’s all fine and well, but did you find the keystone??? lol… Just kidding, it just reminds me of my students wanting to see it b/c of it’s presence in The DaVinci Code. What a beautiful place. I’ve heard that the organ there is extraordinary and that there are free concerts periodically.
