We were in the area, so detoured over to Saint-Sulpice to fulfill our Dan Brown "Davinci Code" curiosity. You can walk through the church to see some of what was written about/shown in the movie, including the Rose Line and obelisk. The church is immense, very old, and very interesting. It is still in use as a church, so be... More

This impressive looking church looks great from the outside, but inside, although very big, is a little lacklustre. The organ is huge and would be good to listen to. Worth a look if you are in the area.

Fir the da Vinci Code fans, the Rose Line is next to the altar. Notice also the rose shaped window pans (also from the book) Beside those, it's also a magnificent church. Not as touristy as other famous ones.

Not much in the way of stained glass windows, a dark and dingy feel inside. The Delacroix paintings were, well Delacroix - nothing to write home about. On the plus side, no crowds and cool inside on a warm day.

We have sat through an organ concert on a Sunday morning here. It is renowned throughout the world and hidden it this wonderful cathedral. Please allow yourself the pleasure of being in the audience, you will not regret it!

Beautiful but not as grand as some others. Be sure and read the short bio of Jean Olier while there. The church was the center of a local reformation of the church 75 years before the Reformation. Sort of a "people's church". Also look for the pre-Greenwich meridian line stretching across in front of the alter to a plaque on... More

Go see the Delacroix and enjoy the neighboring upscale area full of designer shops and expensive restaurants. The architecture is sadly unharmonious and the square a bit blah.

This cathedral is absolutely amazing and equal to if not better than Notre Dame and best of all there was no crowds, queues, nor lines compared to Notre Dame. The architecture here is stunning along with its magnificent stained-glass and enormous organ. This is an absolute must see when visiting Paris.

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.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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 oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
