Situated in the south of Saint-Germain des Près the current, imposing form of the Eglise de Saint-Sulpice dates back tochuch eglise saint-sulpice paris the 18th century, opening out onto an elegant place, the centerpiece of which is an ornate fountain. Being of classical architectural design, the church contains both classic Doric columns and the Corinthian pilasters loved by the Greeks. Only one of the church’s towers has been completed, the uneven profile now a major characteristic. Lovers of Saint-Sulpice will recognise the three works by Delacroix that adorn the church’s inner walls, amongst which is found his depiction of Saint-Michel slaying the dragon. For a unique, almost mythic experience, visitors are advised to come during the winter solstice, when a small hole in the south transept window allows through a laser-like beam of sunlight, lighting up the obelisk at the north end of the church. The experience only lasts a few seconds but has been faithfully repeated over many years. One of the most famous organs of Cavaillé-Coll is found in this church. Don’t forget also to investigate the rue Bonaparte, just next to the church and an excellent shopping spot.
