    Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris

    September 1, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    After endless wandering we finally found what was meant to be our first stop for the day - Church of Saint-Sulpice. This is the second largest church in Paris and was built in 1646. While it has the amazing size, it was obvious that it is not the wealthiest church in Paris and was in fact in need of maintenance, cleaning and repair, which was sad to see.

    It is known for the Great Organ which was reconstructed in 1862, and the unique holy water fonts which were made from the two halves of an enormous shell given to the King by the Venetian public.

    Outside the church was a lovely square and the Fontaine Saint-Sulpice. A nice place to sit and admire the Parisian surroundings.
