A very calm and quiet, restful feeling in this wonderfully appointed church. Excellent stained glass windows complement the wonderful ceiling and wall paintings with an very impressive and gold alter area. Well owrth viewing inside.

We noticed the spire first from far away, as we approached it from the garden. Walked thru the park, and through the old town. It's in a lovely setting. Loved the little sculptures and gargoyles on the outside. Inside, it is very clean, quiet and quaint, with some lovely stained glass windows - obviously still used. It is literally right around the corner from the castle, and it's worth popping in if you have 15-20 minutes to spare.

This church was built for the inhabitants of Fougères. There was a chapel in the 'chateau' but of course this was not for the common people. There is a very nice feeling in this church like you sense the people then put love into building it. Lots of nice details too!

Many French churches feel rather cold and abandoned, especially when they are on a vast scale. Saint-Sulpice is not like that. It still feels like a living place of prayer. The stained glass windows are absolutely enormous but are relatively modern and therefore easy to understand. The tabernacle and altar stand out as being of exceptionally high quality. The church is just across the road from the impressive chateau. It's a very tranquil corner of town and it's quite easy to park just outside the church.
