Recognized as one of the oldest and tallest Roman Catholic churches in Paris, the church originally got recognition from appearing in one of the famous scenes in the film The Da Vinci Code. Though the Saint-Sulpice started gaining more visitors from being spotted in the film curious individuals kept coming back because of its beautiful landscape and antique elaboration.
Construction for this beauty began in 1646 and finally completed in 1870, it took some time to complete the assembly due to lack of financial resources. It contains some of the most interesting artifacts such as:
1. Gnomon which was used to determine Easter day and the hour once light hit it and a shadow was introduced on the floor (this is one of the reasons the church was not destroyed during the Revolutionary War).
2. Located on the outside of the church is a statue of Saint Peter with a gold foot due to it having been rubbed so often by visitors.
3. A vast and impressive organ, one of the biggest in Paris.
4. A number of murals signed by Eugène Delacroix..
When you visit this remarkable church you’ll notice other fascinating details about its structure that will leave you breathless. Saint-Sulpice is one way you can re-visit Paris' history.
