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.

It's a very nice church, in the outside but inside too. You should visit it, you won't regret, i promise!

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.

You may notice the beautiful fountain outside but also take note of the towers! They do not match each other. Because of the Revolution, the work to restore/redesign the towers was interrupted and the work did not continue hence the towers look quite different in size and style. The art inside is magnificent. Beautiful architecture as well. The organ is... More

With the fountain out front and the nuns walking the grounds, I have to say that Saint Sulpice was one of my favorite churches. A lot less mainstream that Notre Dame but seriously worth it. Right in the middle of the Saint Germain neighborhood. Overwhelming beauty and history.

I just love this fountain in spring or summer, it's in a nice surrounding near the Luxembourg park and where you can find many shops and the famous Pierre Hermé. Be sure to have and ice cream by the fountain on a sunny day 😀

Second in size only to Notre Dame Cathedral in the Paris area. Magnificent architecture inside and out. Much history here. The pipe organ is renowned as one of the best in the world. And, the position of Organ Master is one of the most sought after positions for an organist. On Sunday after the 1100h Mass an organ concert is... More

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.
