Saint Sulpice is a beautiful church made famous around the world by the book, The Da Vinci Code-it’s where the albino priest goes to find the “secret” by an obelisk there. It’s near the Luxembourg Gardens and is a beautiful area.
Here it is. If you look you can see that the tower on the right is darker than the tower on the left. That’s because the one of the right was cleaned years before the other. In fact, the scaffolding was up around it when I first moved here to Paris and didn’t come down for years. It shows the quick effects of pollution.
If you go in the opposite direction heading towards St Germain Blvd, you will see the equally famous St Germain des Pres Church. It’s much older than Saint Sulpice. I don’t like it as well though. It’s very dark inside.
