Saint-Sulpice (French pronunciation: ​[sɛ̃sylpis]) is a Roman Catholic church in Paris, France, on the east side of the Place Saint-Sulpice within the rue Bonaparte, in the Odéon Quarter of the 6th arrondissement. At 113 metres long, 58 metres in width and 34 metres tall, it is only slightly smaller than Notre-Dame and thus the second largest church in the city. It is dedicated to Sulpitius the Pious. Construction of the present building, the second church on the site, began in 1646. During the 18th century, an elaborate gnomon, the Gnomon of Saint-Sulpice, was constructed in the church.

    Originally a Romanesque/Renaissance church, it got severely vandalized during Revolution and never recovered to its former glory. Not too interesting...

    Noted as one of the largest churches in Paris, this is a must visit while in St Germain. Two towers and a beautiful fountain frame the outside. Inside, there is a subdued opulence and aged beauty that many will enjoy while walking around.

    Less known than the Notre Dame (despite being featured in the Da Vinci Code), but IMO equally astonishing. Incredibly large, beautiful artwork and not overcrowded with tourists

    Cool church known for its organ among non-religious travelers. I'd been here before I'd seen this, but have since learned Rick Steves had this featured in his video about Paris. It's also right next to one of my favorite bakeries in Paris.
