Church of Saint-SulpiceSeptember 1 in France
We finally found what we were looking for - 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 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.
