☆ Église Saint-Sulpice ☆

15/04/2009

The church has the dimensions and majesty of a cathedral..

☆ Église Saint-Sulpice ☆

Its construction began in the 17th century on the site of a previous building dating back to the 13th century and lasted over 135 years, due to a lack of funds, giving it treasures from each period: a choir decorated with statues by Bouchardon, a Vierge à l’Enfant and two fonts in the shape of shells sculpted by Pigalle, the Chapelle des Saints-Anges whose frescoes, filled the last ten years of Delacroix’ life..

Place Saint-Sulpice (6th).
M° Saint-Sulpice.
Tel: 01 46 33 21 78.
Daily: 7.30am-7.30pm.

DID YOU KNOW??

In the square, the origin of the name of the Fontaine des Quatre Points Cardinaux must contain a certain malice, since none of the Christian orators represented – Bossuet, Fénelon, Fléchier and Massillon – were ever cardinals..
