I was in the area of the beautiful church, Saint Sulpice, the other day, now famous because it was written of in the best seller, The Da Vinci Code.
Here’s a look at the front. When I first moved to Paris about ten years ago (!) I attended a French class near here and the tower on the right side was covered in scaffolding for about three years. Then they moved to the left tower and it was covered in scaffolding for years as well.
Here is is all shiny and white. You can tell that the tower on the right has already gotten darker in color. Did you notice that they are different from each other? Plans were made to change them both but the Revolution brought things to a stand still and the work was never finished.
